[Histonet] double blades for rotary paraffin microtome

From:"Breisch, Eric"

Hi Histologists,
	This is a generalised question regarding microtomes and blades. Has
anyone ever heard of a rotary microtome that uses or used double edged
blades (not unlike the razor blades currently being marketed for shaving) to
cut paraffin blocks? More specifically have double edged blades ever been
used to cut paraffin blocks. Your help and input is greatly appreciated.
