Product Details

Horned-handle bloodletting fleam with three steel blades and a removable thumb lancet. These type of fleams and lancets were used widely in the 18th through the late 19th centuries as instruments of bloodletting. Used by veterinary phlebotomists, the practice of bloodletting was thought to bleed an animal (and humans) free of sickness, disease and evil.

Bloodletting is a known practice throughout history, and this piece is a beautiful piece of it. Some aging and patina, but overall a great piece.
