We offer a unique Free Lifetime Sharpening Guarantee for hospitals using Orthopaedic Instruments (Osteotomes, Chisels and Gouges) manufactured by Platts & Nisbett. There is no catch, we simply like to keep our Surgical Instruments in the best condition, at zero cost to our customers! 

We aim to carry out the work within 24-48 Hours. This fast turnaround time ensures the instruments are not out of the operating theatre for too long.

To keep our instruments in the best condition we recommend that all sharpening is carried out by our Company. Using Platts & Nisbett (the Original Manufacturer) ensures that both the original 5-Year Warranty and Free Lifetime Sharpening Guarantee remain valid.
