I've been looking for the right balance between price & quality. I've recently purchased lower cost instruments, and was thoroughly disappointed. These are nice without being top shelf quality. They are far better than most others I've seen. These are attractive, useful, reasonably precise, but not priced so high as to be prohibitive. I think these strike the right balance for emergency use.
These are nicer than the instruments that come in the disposable trays but not as nice as the ones my professor owns. These hemostats fit my large hands better than the disposable ones. Neither of these is a needle driver so I don't know why they call this a suture set; they are both hemostats (it does say so down in the full description). I ended up getting a suture driver from someone in practice to use with these on my suture learning kit.
I purchased these because I have medical condition (IBM) which makes it impossible for me to open many products and Ziploc bags....these are like having strong hands again!
