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".
I have several of these in different colors. I have a pair for a vehicle emergency kit, a hiking first aid pack, home first aid, one in a bailout bag, and one in the garage. Very tough and will cut through anything. Highly recommend these combat sheers.
Premium EMT / Combat Shears
Great quality, sharp with a handle that is strong, glows very nice. Great item for your pack or kit.
I have been using the compact sheers for a year or so now, I prefer them for everyday cutting tasks. These full size sheers are very sturdy, will cut anything like it's butter, and seem tough. The are a little uncomfortable for doing a lot of repetitive cutting tasks, which is why I only gave them 4 stars.
These are very high quality shears that looks like they will last for years.
Far, far superior to the slightly cheaper ones found on eBay.
