Maratac has decided to make the new Mini Utility Scissors for greater ease of portability with the same great quality you come to expect from Maratac. These Stainless Scissors seem to cut just about everything varying from cordage to ballistic nylon. Designed and built for the medical industry they have way more uses that you could possibly imagine. Nothing wimpy here. Autoclavable at 290F should you need it surgical clean.
Overall length 4.90 inches. Divers carry them to clear themselves from entanglements from fishing lines and nets that aren't easily cleared with a knife. Gardeners will find them great for cutting off plastics nursery pots. Mechanics and handymen need them in their tool boxes for cutting who knows what. Climbers will find them perfect for removing bits of clothing that get sucked into their descending devices. Who wants to use a big knife near their life line. Cooks and kitchen workers will find them useful for poultry and cutting open large bags. Fishermen and hunters will find them very handy. EMTs & Paramedics have used them for years to cut boots and even leather motorcycle jackets off their patients. Orthopedic Technologists use them for preparing casting and splinting for their patients.
Order a couple of pairs for your first aid kit, and your tool kit too.
i have been happy with this purchase. but i bought them to cut paracord, as one of my hobbies is to make paracord goodies. these don't do that very well. they seem to cut other household items fairly effectively. i would be surprised to find that they cut leather very well. i have always been happy with purchases from this site, we'll see how this works out, over time.
The added length to the handle portion increases the leverage and improves the ergonomics. Still small enough to fit into pouches and designed for safety. A fraction of the cost of similar scissors.
Love them. Get a bunch and stash them in your bags, vehicles, and drawers.
Yes their small, but don’t let their size fool you. Their capable of handling any cutting job you throw at them.
This pair of scissors/shears is perfect for my dog-care kit: I keep it in the small dyneema bag with the grommet in the corner along with gauze pads, tape, and Benadryl bee stings!) etc — but the shears are perfect for clipping the hair around my dog’s paws — no sharp tips to accidentally poke him with, sharp enough to get the job done without pulling the hair, and compact enough for the IFAK for the pup. Never leave home for a hike without the kit and these shears.
