420 stainless steel Needle
420 stainless steel is widely used in surgery over hundreds years. AKA “AS” needle named by Wegosutures for these sutures needle made by 420 steel. The performance is good enough base on precision manufacturing process and quality control. AS needle is the most easier on manufacturing compare with the order steel, it brings the cost-effect or economic to the sutures.
