FW: Nominations for the best disposable microtome blade

From:Bonnie P Whitaker

Hi All,
I second the ThermoShandon nomination.... I have to admit that I haven't cut
with it myself, but my lead tech loves the MB-35 and I was astounded when I
ordered them for her and found them to be a lot cheaper than the Accuedge!
We're trying the MB-22 next (recommended for kidneys).

For the price the ThermoShandon's blade MX-35 Premier is a great blade.
Half the cost of accuedge.  Now, finally Accuedge is getting competition
from other vendors.    There used to be no comparison between blades.   Not
so anymore.

I second what vikki said, accuedge is by far the best blade out there.
