The slender design and excellent balance are the characteristics which make the STILLE Instruments easily recognizable. Their highly polished surface and delicate design make STILLE instruments lighter and easier to keep clean, thus more durable against discoloration and corrosion. All this provides STILLE instruments with a unique and outstanding feeling.


Stille is the only medical instrument maker in the world that still manufactures instruments from tubular steel in their own forge. For makers of precision surgical instruments, production has always maintained its artisanal character. They rely not only on drawings but, just as much, on their own sense of functionality and feature.

A complete instrument works like a model. The dimensions are already in the hands. Instrument makers know the precise bend with their own fingers, and they know how a perfect instrument should feel in the human hand. Minimum defects are immediately evident. Instrument makers share that special fingertip sense of functionality with the surgeon.


Surgical hand instruments manufactured by Stille carry a guarantee in respect of materials and workmanship. For a period of 30 years after purchase, we will replace or repair a damaged instrument free of charge if the damage is found to have been caused by a defect in materials or workmanship.

The guarantee is conditional on the instrument being used for the purpose intended, is cared for and stored correctly and that any claims are made in in writing within 30 days of the damage occurring.

Stille Forceps

AS AN EXTENSION OF THE SURGEON’S THUMB and forefinger, forceps need to grasp and release with the same sensitivity as a pair of fingertips. The claws on surgical forceps are specially designed to make a firm, yet gentle, grasp of the tissue. The anatomical forceps are designed, as much as possible, to take an atraumatic grip on sensitive tissue.

It is the fine tuning that creates the perfect balance with a smooth, resilient spring action and a firm grip. The surface grooves increase gripping power even further. This gives the surgeon full control while causing as little harm to the tissue as possible.

Forceps are among the surgical instruments that founder Albert Stille learned to make from scratch during his apprenticeship in the 1830’s. Forceps are seemingly simple instrument but still demands ultra-precision in the manufacturing process. Over the years, STILLE’s forceps continue to be refined and are today recognized for their unique feel and excellent balance in combination with unsurpassed longevity.
