Antique  William Hey Medical Surgical Craniotomy Skull Saw c1830
1 Antique William Hey Medical Surgical Craniotomy Skull Saw c1830
17.5cm long (6 3/4” inches) 
Antique William Hey Medical Surgical Craniotomy Skull Saw c1830 Commonly known as a Hey’s saw, it is a double-bladed instrument that allows it to be used for different angled cuts. It is named after Sir William Hey (1736 – 1819 ), an English surgeon who designed and refine the tool This instrument has a steel blade and shaft with a crosshatched ebony? handle. Approximately 17.5cm long (6 3/4” inches), unsigned. Good condition, still sharp. As well over 100 / almost 200 years old has some pitting to steel (nothing major), and various saw tips loss. They were made from c1803 to about 1880, but as they were so good and well made, They were prized and kept buy surgeons and so one made in around 1830 could well have been treasured and still have been in use till the 1880's. It is named after William Hey, an English surgeon who helped refine the tool, in fact this design is almost identical to one of Hey's own tools that were made for him in 1803. It is known that Craniotomy Skull surgery has been around for thousands of years. But the earliest known specialized skull saws that were used in England date to the 14th century. In about 1770 or so Sir William Hey an English surgeon started developing and improving skull saws in Leeds, north England, to find the best design to actually use. And in 1803 he finalized his saws, that were best designs for his use, they soon came to be known as Hey’s saws. The designs were so good, right for use that no general surgical or specialised neurosurgery set was complete without at least one of “Hey’s” saws. They were used to cut the cranium around a skull fracture until the dura, or brain covering, was exposed.
