Striations produced on rib cartilages by a knife were conclusively matched with the individual characteristics of the cutting edge of the knife. This was accomplished using Dip-Pak $#x00AE; (cellulose acetate butyratE), Coe-Flex $#X00AE (polysulfide dental impression), and comparison microscopy. An absolute identification was made in which all significant striae matched the individual characteristics of the blade's cutting edge.
