19th C Blot’s Perforator

  1. Items>
  2. Current Item

A nice example of a Blot’s perforator with a fixed point which allowed easier initial perforation of the foetal skull.

The initial perforation would be enlarged by applying pressure on the sprung handle which would open the blades. The perforated skull would then be easier to collapse so as to facilitate extraction of the foetus from the womb. All metal with a spiral design on the handle.
