CAUTION: Extreme care must be used when handling The Surgical Equipment People diamond knife, as the diamond blade can be damaged when handled improperly. It is recommended that the diamond blade be retracted when the knife is not in use. When cleaning, never apply excessive side to side motion to the diamond.

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS: Never force any part of the diamond knife because calibration may be affected. Never attempt to disassemble The Surgical Equipment People diamond knife. Assembly requires special alignment tools. It is recommended that diamond knife be sent to our service facility to be cleaned and calibrated regularly. Any use of the diamond knife other than that for which it was intended voids any warranty agreement.

The following steps are recommended to clean the diamond knife after surgery:

1) Immediately following surgery, fill two containers, one with Hydrogen Peroxide, the other with distilled water. Extend the blade and swig the top 1/4 of the knife in Hydrogen Peroxide for approximately 2 minutes. Shake off excess moisture and repeat the same procedure in distilled water.

2) Inspect the blade under magnification. If the blade Is clean, autoclave as normal. If debris Is present, extend blade and hold top 1/4 of knife in an ultrasonic cleaning unit containing distilled water and an Enzyme tablet for approximately 2-3 minutes. Shake off excess moisture and inspect the blade.

3) Autoclaving at 275°F maximum temperature for 3 to 5 minutes is the recommended sterilization method for surgical diamond knives and coin gauges. The blade must be in the retracted position during sterilization.
