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 purchased two - one for daily use, the other to keep in my personal jump bag. Delivery was prompt, exactly what I ordered (no mistakes in other words). And I was able to cut a penny just like the video.
I've purchased several pairs of these shears and allocated one to every essentials pouch that I own. There's a pair of shears in my EDC bags, first aid kits, repair kits, and tool bags. You can't go wrong with these as they cut flawlessly through just about anything from paracord to nylon.
We needed some help with some wound care. Great shears, sharp, rigid and made to last.
I got these mostly if I need to cut something in the vicinity my toddler. I don't like having pointy things around in that moment. I wrapped my shears with a strip of Velcro and stuck it inside my vertx bag with all my other first aid stuff. Top notch piece of kit as usual.
