Happy Friday Histonetters!

I am working on a histology platform in a research center and someone came
to me last week and asked to cut blocs of resin (JB-4 resin) on the
microtome. I never cut anything else than paraffin, so I was wondering if
some of you had advices for me?

They never did it neither and took their protocol in a paper where it was
said that we should use disposable glass knife instead of standard metal
blades. Are any of you ever used those knife? Where do you buy them?
We have an old Leica RM2125.

Thanks for your advices!
