The SK109 has a unique patented valley, which guides the material to be cut directly along the surgical steel blade. As the valley deepens, the pressure is increased onto the blade, the cutting action is more effective, thus taking the strain off the operator and increasing overall efficiency.

The patented valley is totally unique in the field of Safety Knives.
