Signature Series 12″ Hemostats are 20% lighter than industry standards (and 19mm vs 35mm ring spacing). Less fatiguing for extended use and a terrific choice for smaller hands. Anodized finishes retain the corrosion resistance of the standard stainless steel tools, but not to the level of our heat treated red, green or black finishes.
You can see the ring size and spacing difference in the second photo, Signature Series on the left, standard 12″ hemostat on the right. Use our various color choices to assign tools for different uses. One color for cleaning, one for feeding. Or to denote quarantine use, snake use, lizard use, or particular staffer use. Anodized colors have a lot of market appeal, especially to younger users.
