The tangential design of the slit knife merges two micro-thin radii to create an edge that engages tissue with only two contact points. The design results in a decrease in friction and penetration force, promoting a more precise cellular dissection resulting in superior wound architecture, according to the company.

Measuring 0.1 mm, the new slit knife is also about 40% thinner than the company's standard slit knife. The instrument is available in a variety of sizes from 1.5 to 3.2 mm.
