Choose from 3 metals:
157.268 Dumont HP Carbon OC - For high strength and durability
Carbon Steel is the strongest of the metals used to make Dumont Tweezers. Carbon steel will rust, so care must be taken to protect carbon steel tweezers in use and storage. Store carbon steel tweezers with a light coating of oil, or under a protective lightly oiled cloth. Carbon Steel is also magnetic. With proper care, carbon steel tweezers will hold an edge and stay sharp longer than stainless steel tweezers.
157.269 Dumont HP Stainless OC Inox - For strength and corrosion & acid resistant
Stainless Steel (Dumont INOX) is the most popular metal choice for Dumont Tweezers. Although not as strong as carbon steel, stainless steel resists rusting while still delivering a long lasting edge.
157.01130C Dumont EQ Stainless OC Inox - For strength, corrosion & acid resistant
Stainless Steel Dumont INOX is the most popular metal choice for Dumont Tweezers. Although not as strong as carbon steel, stainless steel resists rusting while still delivering a long lasting edge.
