Therefore, TC is a material very high hardness with high resistance to wear and oxidation. The tungsten carbide needle holders are recognizable by their two gold handles.
A straight tip for open areas with sufficient space and non-slip jaws: the short, grooved jaws make it easier to grip the needle and hold it firmly in place to prevent slipping when suturing a wound.
