Title: CUTTING TOOL
Abstract:
The various embodiments relate to cutting tools (10) including non- shearing cutting blades (21, 31) which allow in-line cutting of various materials. The cutting tools further include handles (26, 36), pivot assemblies (40, 42, 44, 46), and a capture space for removing cut materials. In use, the cutting blades are brought together, the cutting blades (21, 31) and inner surfaces (23, 33) forming a capture space that holds materials cut by the cutting blades. The cut material does not fly off or become lost in the patient and can be removed within the capture space. Various embodiments of the cutting tools include cutting blades angled inward towards an inner surface (23, 33). The cutting tool is used for removing crimped cable ends, suture knots or soft tissue from a patient.
