The history of podiatry blades
Before you talk about our blades, here is the origin of this invention and the diagrams on the patent application of Mr. Plançon
In 1981, Mr Jacques Plançon, a cutler, introduced the principle of the disposable gouge blade.
He then filed a patent which was acquired by a well-known Swiss company. This patent has since entered into the public domain.
In 1997, his son, Michel, was involved in the building of our gouge blade production facility.
Since then, with the same toolmakers and specialised machine manufacturers, we have been continually improving our processes and products to bring gouge blades of the highest quality to podiatry professionals.
High quality manufacturing
True to the desired quality and professionally approved, we continue to produce our stainless-steel gouge blades, cut from surgical grade metal.
We then carefully form the head of each gouge.
Then comes the important phase of quenching, which hardens the gouge blade and gives it strength, before high-quality deburring and polishing using state-of-the-art machinery.
And last but not least, the blades are sharpened on diamond grinding wheels with special machines that control the time, cutting angle and strength of the grinding, ensuring perfection.
After Gamma sterilisation and secure packaging, its ready - the ideal tool that allows you to give quality care.
