Unusual Antique Homemade Surgical And/Or Suture Kit Scalpels, Knives, Needles:
$70

NOTE: Thekit will be shipped insured, the cost of which is included in theshipping charges. I'll cover any additional insurance required by the purchase price. Please note that the shipping terms are five business days. I usually get things out much quicker, but due to health issues (Multiple Sclerosis) I have to allow for the occasional days when I'm not able to do much. Keep this in mind if trying to contact me as well. I will respond but at times it may take a bit longer. This set is fairly heavy, so shipping will be a bit higher than usual.

Offered for your consideration is an interesting and unusual antique surgical and suture kit. The kit contains manufactured and homemade components contained within a custom made hardwood case. It appears to be missing a couple components, including forceps. A table knife that was modified into a surgical knife is marked with the initials "J.S." and a modified surgical knife was engraved on both sides of the handle with "Jo. Svoboda".

This is a very interesting kit that no doubt has a fascinating history. Some of the components are manufactured products from surgical instrument companies and others were either modified from common knives or hand crafted. There are four knives, four scalpels, ten high-quality suturing needles, a probe, and pair of scissors. One of the knife was made by Harrington & Son and the blade was carefully re-shaped into a birdsbeak profile. A second knife appears to have been completely hand made, the blade possibly shaped from a piece of saw steel. A third knife is a modified surgical knife from F.A. Koch & Co. in Germany. The fourth knife is my personal favorite and was crafted from a standard plated table knife. The maker buffed a small area of plating off the handle to form sort of an escutcheon where he placed his initials in deeply punched individual dots. The black-handkled scalpel was made in Germany and marked with what looks like"R. Geldmachel". The only other scalpel that's marked simply has a hand symbol with "FORGED" underneath it. The scissors are unmarked and very loose. The needles are of very high quality with most having been made by W. Hall & Co. in England. Several are marked with the number 16. The large curved needle is of exceptional quality and is marked "Berbecker". It is flat on the outside radius, while the inside starts flat but has a crisp, very pronounced median ridge from the halfway point to the tip. The probe appears to have been hand crafted as well. It has a steel triangular tip and a turned hardwood handle. The handle appears to have been made from the same wood that was used for the hand crafted knife.

The box was solidly crafted and is free of any cracks, splits, or damage, showing just normal shelf wear.

An interesting and unique kit with lots of character!!

Sorry, but no international shipping.
