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".
These shears are able to cut through just about anything, including annoying plastic security packaging! Black-coated blades are best, as they never seem to corrode like the plain stainless does sitting in a drawer for extended periods...
Excellent quality stainless steel construction cuts almost anything paper - wire - light weight metals and shows no wear and tear. For the few cents more get the glow in the dark handles (if in stock) well worth the extra money.
