Description / History:
Set of twentieth century bandage scissors manufactured by Dascher Manufacturing Company. Bandage scissors are positioned at an angle with a rounded blunt bottom blade to avoid scraping skin when cutting bandages. These five bandage scissors are made of stainless steel with "DASCHER" labeled on the side of the handle. The last bandage scissor has "Martin" printed on the joint of the device. The metal notches on the handle are intended for a better grip on the instrument. A metal lock is attached to the end of the handle to ensure that blades are closed. There are six bandage shears in total.
Named as the "father of surgery", Susruta, described the use over a hundred of surgical instruments in his medical book Sushruta Samhita. Sushruta Samhita was written in the 6th century B.C. The medical text contained one hundred eighty–four chapters on medical herbs, illnesses, surgical techniques, and use of surgical instruments among various topics.
