Shears are marked "Maratac™ stainless steel" and exhibit Maratac's usual attention to detail. These are truly top shelf tools.
These are your basic full size EMT / paramedic super shear with a couple major twists. We had the blades made with a black durable passivated low-light finish on the stainless steel blades. The handles are made of impact resistant composite in ACU (army combat uniform) grey color. Their uses in the real world are limitless. Besides their obvious first aid uses, they also cut flex-cuffs off prisoners, open burlap bags when searching for contraband, open MREs and they even cut coins. WMD specialists always have a couple pairs with them. Labeled "Maratac™ stainless steel".
Got the combat shears with the bright handles. Work good and I won’t loose them.
Wanted dependable HD shears and that is what I received. Much more solid and higher quality than other shears I've purchased. Very pleased again with CC products and service.
These are probably much better than their Chinese or Indian counterparts. I have always used the free ones from work and never had a problem, but these elevate my coolness factor and make me the envy of the peasants that still use the issue stuff. Be cool like me and get a pair, just don't let the pretty nurse at the ER borrow them, you will never see them again.
