Octagonal 12 blade scarificator

Brass case, release knob and depth adjusting knob, steel cocking lever and blades. The two sets of rounded blades cut in opposite directions. Fine, working condition, with a nice patina to the brass. Unlike the spring lancets and fleams, which were used to open a vein, scarificators simply made numerous small wounds prior to applying a cupping glass.

Price: (sold).
