Diamond cryo knives

The cryo 35° knife has demonstrated its usefulness as a standard knife for the low temperature sectioning of polymers, rubber, paints, etc.

The 35° angle represents a balancedcompromise between section quality anddurability.

The cryo 35° and cryo 45° knife mountedin the triangular holder is suitable for dry cryosectioning
