Leica EM KMR2 glass knifemaker produces 45° glass knives from 6.4, 8 and 10 mm thick glass utilizing the balanced-break method.
The Leica EM KMR2 introduces two new scoring positions, enabling optimal corner to corner breaks.
The longer score is used for scoring the strips before breaking into squares. It can then subsequently be used for scoring the squares to make the knife pairs.• Preferable for room temperature sectioning.
The shorter score is an option for those preferring a longer “freebreak“. • Glass knives with the longest useable knife edge.• Real knife angle close to 45°• Preferable for cryo sectioning
