Hello, up for sale is a rare antique circa 1900 French medical collectible device bloodletting scarificator with 10 cutting blades. Spring loaded. Made of nickel plated brass with steel blades. All working with single action the lever must locked manually when load.

I sell antique and vintage collectible stuff - unique items that have history, and may show signs of this - it is part of their charm. I try to describe any obvious faults as truthfully as I can. However, as most of my items are 100 years old, they will often bear the traces of a previous life. Please think carefully about offerding if you are looking for a pristine item that is as new. My passion is for beautiful antique stuff and quirky vintage items with a gently faded grandeur, so do consider this before deciding to offer.
