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".
Thank you for carrying quality and having the answer to the age old question, “what do I get the woodsman who has everything?”
I have a bunch with the black blade and they work great, they seem more sturdy then some of the other EMT shears that I own, will be buying more from CountyComm
I bought these shears as a gift for my physician's assistant. She had been struggling during a previous appointment to cut a thick dressing I had from surgery. Her conventional scissors were not up to the task.
During a later visit I asked her if she liked her new shears, and if they worked for her purpose. Her answer was an grateful and emphatic "YES!"
