I always found better and used a wet "camel's" hair pencil. It provides the most gentle pull on the sections.

Morning all!

I need some quick responses to this question:  do you use your fingers or an instrument of some sort to pull your paraffin ribbons off the block when sectioning?  For those that do not use their fingers, what do you use?  If forceps, are these the typical lab forceps or a special type?

Thanks so much!
