I have heard of a double bladed saw, but not a dissecting knife. Is there a
problem cutting nice thin sections making two cuts? If the tissue is held
between two back to back cassettes, it will be firm enough to make a nice
thin section. Hope this makes sense! j:>)

	Hi fellow histologist & vendors!
	Is there a dissecting knife on the market that is double bladed?
	cutting in soft tissue) We receive numerous soft tissue
	are sent for margin study. A representative section is taken-through

	the center of the mass and processed for paraffin sectioning. It 
	seems that I have seen or heard of a double blade dissecting knife 
	that would make it much easier- than using a single blade. 
	I am having a difficult time wording this inquiry! I don't know if
	has anything to do with the time of day?!?!?!?
	Thank you in advance,
	Kathy Oprea
