Blade Choices

Carb-N-Sert (Tungsten Carbide)

Carb-N-Sert Scissors have tungsten carbide inserts bonded seamlessly to the upper and lower blades. These premium-grade scissors offer precision cutting performance and the durability of tungsten carbide cutting edges.

These scissors provide considerable cost savings through their consistently superior performance and extended service life. Carb-N-Sert Scissors are easily identified by their gold ring handles.


SuperCut Scissors have a razor-sharp upper blade edge that easily cuts through tissue while the micro-fine serrations on the lower blade hold tissue and prevent slippage. SuperCut Scissors have two black ring handles.

SuperCut Scissors should only be used to cut tissue. Proper handling will ensure a lifetime of service, and regular re-sharpening — a service Miltex provides — is recommended.

Combination SuperCut/Carb-N-Sert

Combination scissors offer the durability of tungsten carbide edges with SuperCut performance. SuperCut/Carb-N-Sert Scissors have one short and one long gold-plated ring handle.

Blade Design

The tungsten carbide inserts are seamlessly bonded to high-quality stainless steel and then precisely ground and honed on diamond wheels. SuperCut Scissors have a finely beveled blade with a razor-sharp edge and an opposing blade with micro-fine serrations to prevent tissue slippage and facilitate effortless cutting. (A)
