Knives, Paraffin

Definition : Knives designed to cut paraffin blocks. These knives usually consist of a sturdy blade made of a hard metal (e.g., beryllium copper) that retains heat well and a shank that is permanently attached to a handheld heat source. The heat from the heat source (e.g., thermoelectrical) travels through the shank and penetrates the blade. Usually, the temperature may be controlled from room temperature to 100 degrees Celsius (212 degrees Fahrenheit). Paraffin knives are used to handle paraffin in clinical laboratories (e.g., for histology and pathology embedding) and also for other paraffin applications (e.g., physical therapy).
