On some holders you can easily convert back and forth from low to high.  If your service person does not know anything about that, I would ask Leica.  Specifically ask for a tech rep with the most microtome experience (in years).  That person should be able to tell you what part you need.  They may even have an old one lying around for you.
Also check with some of the more established labs in your area, they may have a blade holder that you can get for parts.

Hi everyone,
                I have a newly refurbished Leica RM2135 at my disposal, but the knife holder is for high profile blades. 2 questions.
1-Is it that different using high-profile blades vs. low. (I have used low-profile blades forever.) 2-There is a slot on the bottom of the blade holder, and I seem to remember that it can be converted to a low-profile holder by sliding an narrow metal strip into that slot. I know I've done this before, but it was long ago, and the used equipment guy says there's no such thing.

Thank you!
