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 picked up the gray handle shears. These damn things will cut through nearly anything! Perfect for that clear plastic packaging that just about everything you buy comes in these days. I keep them at the ready in the junk drawer.
Quality overall, though the blades do not mesh quite perfectly, leaving a slight gap between the blades on one end during close. No worries for my applications, but this may cause issues for those looking to generate a more precise cut in fabric or webbing.
CountyComm EMT/Trauma Shears are the best I've owned to date. Daughter is a Nurse and she loves them. ER crew love em.
