>>As part of ongoing research at our company I was trying to cut uniform cross
sections of bovine hooves across the horizontal plane. We recently bought a 
sliding microtome (HM 440E, Carl Zeiss, Inc.) and were using it with a 
tungsten carbide knife. Unfortunately the tissue is much harder than what we 
expected and we were unsuccessful.<<
