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 are outstanding shears. Not a scissors but real heavy duty shears. You can cut through the fabric on the leg of denim including seams with no problem.
Perfect for your cutting needs without having to worry about an accidental slip up and cutting the patient. Get them.
I bought seven pairs of these, glow handled and the grey with the black blade. The girls took the glow ones, squealed and ran away. Guess that meant they were happy... I got to stash the grey ones so they don't find and steal them. One set made it to my work, and I've been using them regularly. You won't hear me complain, or the coworkers who borrow them. Thanks CC!
I purchased these to add to my trauma bag and my IFAK, once they arrived I really liked the look of the black blades with the grey handle. Sharp, reliable and don't break. 1 day after purchase I was using them and had no worries of them breaking on me during use.
These are the best scissors you can buy for the price. The coating holds up very well while the cutting edge remains sharp through any cutting use. I highly recommend buying these for home, work, and medical use.
