Barber of Sheffield offer a range of differing ends and eyes in their needle product range:

Channel Type:These needles allow for the crimping of suture materials to the needle. We can also offer a range of crimping machines if you require this type of supply.

Double Eye:  This type of needle is sometimes called spring eye, French eye or split eye. These needles allow for easier suturing and tend to be used in countries where English is not predominantly spoken.

Drilled End:These are precision drilled for maximum holding strength and also feature an ultra-smooth finish.

Regular Eye:This type of needle is a standard single eye needles. These are hand finished to ensure no snagging of suture materials and a smooth surface.

The needle points may be round, triangular cutting (conventional or reverse), blunt, knife point or trocar.
