Politzer's spoon forceps

Politzer's spoon forceps is a spring type forceps. The shanks are bent at an angle of 45 degrees. The blades are slender and each of the two blades terminate in a long spoon shaped jaw which has finely serrated edges. Since the maximum width of this forceps is less than 3 mm it can be used through a speculum of the smallest size. The blades are constructed in such a way that they will not cross or pass by each other and hence will not obstruct surgeon's field of vision.
