Fiberoptic illuminated instruments give you the opportunity to improve visualization by providing light at the tip. The special squeeze handle has the option of adding a .5mm flexible fiberoptic light pipe (available separately). The instruments utilize a 1.1mm (19 gauge) shaft, which tapers to .65mm (23 gauge) 3mm from the tip. This provides light where you need it most, while freeing your other hand to hold a second instrument. The instrument tips are crafted in a unique, highly corrosion resistant stainless steel.
