       Following is the details.hope you find this information helpful.

       For either size and depending on the size of the graft and the number of hair follicles in the graft 

For example if  have a graft with a single hair,use sapphire blade size 0.8mm

If have a graft with two hairs but thin type of hair,also use 0.8mm.

For thicker hair or grafts with 3 or 4 hairs follicles ,use blade size 1.2 So to be safe and depending on the skills of the person who is placing the grafts

       I would suggest the following:

For punch size 0.7 or .0.8 use blade size 0.8 or 0.9

And For punch size 0.8 or 0.9 with more than 2 hairs use blade size 1 or 1.2
