Dressing scissors are a type of medical instrument specifically designed for cutting bandages, dressings, sutures, and other medical materials. They come in two distinct blade configurations: sharp and blunt.


  • Sharp blades: These blades are designed for precise cutting. They have a pointed tip and a smooth cutting edge, allowing for clean cuts through tissue or other materials.

  • Blunt blades: These blades have a blunted tip and a serrated edge. The blunted tip helps to prevent accidental punctures or injuries to underlying tissue, while the serrated edge helps to grip and hold onto materials that might be slippery or difficult to grasp with a sharp blade.
