Orbitoclast and Hammer SetIn stock Used to perform Transorbital Lobotomy Here is your chance to buy a Lobotomy tool set. An orbitoclast is a surgical instrument used for performing transorbital lobotomies. It was invented by Dr. Walter Freeman in 1948 to replace the unique form of leucotome used up until that point for the transorbital lobotomy procedure. The hammer and Orbitoclast are made out of stainless steel. The orbitoclast is stamped Freeman on both sides.

This is a replica and not to be confused from an original.

This set is for a collection or display purposes only! The orbitoclast is pointed and is very dangerous. I will not be held liable for the misuse of any product purchased from me.
Must be 21 and older to buy these items. A lobotomy is a surgical technique that involves making an incision in the brain's frontal lobe, severing several nerve tracts. Today lobotomies are usually just the subject of a grim joke, but this crude procedure used to be a relatively common way to pacify aggressive mental patients.

Between 1939 and 1951, over 18,000 lobotomies were performed in the United States. Egas Moniz, the physician who pioneered the practice, won a Nobel Prize for his efforts.

An American physician named Walter Freeman was the procedure's biggest proponent, performing dozens of lobotomies in a single session. He used an ice pick-like instrument that was inserted through a patient's eye socket, then whisked back and forth. Horrifying, but true.

Contrary to popular belief, a lobotomy did not necessarily turn the subject into a vegetable, but the results were decidedly mixed. Famous recipients of lobotomies include actress Frances Farmer, Rosemary Kennedy, and the fictional hero of Ken Kesey's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." The Orbitoclast is 10 inches long !
