The splinter forceps are particularly suited for fine work, mainly for the removal of foreign bodies from the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Thanks to the holding jaws, which culminate in a pointed tip, and their ribbed finish, the splinter forceps can be used to easily grasp and remove even the smallest foreign body (such as splinters). The splinter tweezers can also be used, for example, for applying cone-shaped salve to wounds.
