American Eagle Instruments® needle holders are manufactured to the highest standards of surgical mechanical craftsmanship.
Modern surgical needles are particularly hard and therefore place increased demands on the resilience of the instruments. That is why American Eagle needle holders are reinforced throughout with Tungsten Carbide inserts (TC = Tungsten Carbide/Wolfram Carbide). This sintered material shows only minimal wear and withstands all common types of reprocessing. The inserts are finely grooved to align the needles correctly and precisely and to hold or fix them securely.
Our needle holders have no sharp edges on the hinge or on the hard metal inserts. This allows the thread to slide over the instrument unhindered – reliably preventing the risk of accidental detachment during sewing or tying.
