After 30 years and 100's of various knives for scraping paraffin blocks - I started using a stainless steel weighing spatula, A Fisherbrand "Scoopula" spatula. It's curved, with a smooth back that won't dig into your hand after scraping 100's of blocks - it's the best thing I ever used!! They can be purchased from Fisher Scientific. Try it!!

Subject: cartilage knife
My supervisor is looking for a vendor who sells cartilage knives. These
knives are about 7 inches long with a black or silver handle. We use
them to scrape paraffin blocks after embedding.
