The great wealth of knowledge
The tip is the critical bit
A surgical pincette has meshing teeth and must be finished to perfection. It is only when these teeth mesh with absolute precision that surgeons can secure human tissue or exert strong traction without having to exert great pressure. The anatomical pincette is there for vulnerable structures like blood vessels and nerves. Instead of teeth for gripping firmly, these instruments have lateral grooves in their gripper chucks.
