Sorry, I tell my techs a knife is cheaper than a complaint from the pathologists so, please don't abuse.  H owever; don't hesitate to use what you need.  As teh old saying oges for us "A happy Patholgist is a happy life"!!  

A dull is bad for sectioning and is dangerous overall.  I can't imagine telling my Histologist to cut corners on knives and they know me well enough that they would think I had lost my mind!!  So many other places to cut cost and not affect section quality.

I work in a hospital, there are three of us on this particular shift and we 
cut approx. 200 blocks, give or take a few.  Our histo lab manager is 
telling us we should only be using one pack of blades (50 per pack) a 
month.  I'm wondering what other techs think of this especially lab 
managers and supervisors.
