Re: Leica disposable blades

From:Connie McManus <>

I use Lieca blades... for the time being... until I usse them all up and
I can go back to my Surgipath blades.  I don't know what the CMS blades
youmention are like, but I use low profile blades.  My Leica blades are
model 819.  I don't know what the catalogue number is, but there is a
number on the inside flap of the box that reads:  0819C06 and there are
50 blades per box.  

hope this is helpful

have a nice day all
