Select implant cutters to suit the type and size of implant to be cut, and the position of the implant. Using hacksaws is best avoided as far as possible – due to the work hardening characteristic of stainless steel and titanium, the harder you work the harder it is to cut. Intramedullary pins and K /A wires are already hardened during production so are even tougher. Designs and finish of cutter: Surgical finish stainless steel with TC inserts – suitable for appropriate sizes of hard wires. Can be used for appropriate sizes of cuttable plate. Also for cutting fish hooks! Industrial finish – strong and cheaper than surgical finish, but not long lasting due to corrosion. Side cutting – standard pattern straight cutters Close cut – end cutting. For smaller pins only. Harder to cut long sections but allow cutting close to the bone. Safety cutters – leave a blunt end with no snags, but leave a longer stub. Best for ex fix pins Compound action – more expensive but make cutting pins easier Prolong the life of your pin cutter by not cutting at the tip – as tungsten carbide is brittle, it is prone to break when cutting at the very tip, where it is less well supported by the stainless jaw.
