gSource rod cutters are manufactured from high quality German surgical stainless steel and are used to cut various diameter rods up to 6.35mm [1/4"] during orthopedic and spinal procedures. Jaws are made from the toughest specially-tempered steel or have tungsten carbide inserts. Replacement jaws are available for some rod cutters, and some are available with detachable handles to help save space during autoclaving and storage. Hand-held and table-top rod cutters are available. Many rod cutters have a double action design which delivers power to the cutter and gives the surgeon better control and a smooth and easy cutting action. Our gSilicone Rod Shears provide a clean cut without burrs or sharp edges for rod diameters 4.5mm [.177"], 5.5mm [.217"], and 6.35mm [1/4"], and also have biocompatible silicone handles for a comfortable and secure grip. Select a rod cutter based on the rod diameter being cut and do not exceed the maximum capacity rod diameter marked on the cutter.
