The Leatherman Raptor shears features the necessary tools for uniformed medical professionals to safely and quickly go to work in an emergency situation. Developed with the input of special operations medics, EMTs and fire professionals familiar with standard medical shears, the Raptor was crafted with just the right balance of multipurpose features for medical-specific ops without an overkill of tools to complicate sometimes life-threatening situations. When it's a question of survival, the Raptor answers loud and clear.

    Comments about Raptor:

    I bought this as an alternative to a scuba diving knife as some places (cruise ships) won't let you take a knife. Upon inspection the Raptor seemed like a great tool - it had a belt cutter that works as a line cutter diving and the shears appeared very strong. I even loved the sheath as it looked like the Raptor would be easy ro access in an emergency. The most important part for me was that is was stainless steel.

    I attached the sheath to a web strap on my BCD and when I got back in the boat I sat down and it fell off. Glad it didn't happen in the water. After the second and final dive I rinsed all my gear including the Raptor in fresh water. Imagine my surprise when I saw rust on it the next day. I think the blade material is stainless steel but it looks like anywhere there is a spring, rust came out so I suspect it is not all SS.

    So I like the tool and would recommend it, just not working around salt water.

    ems shears

        Comments about Raptor:

        I'm in Fire and EMS, and these shears are undoubtedly great! But they won't fit in a standard trauma-shears pocket on your pants or other gear. They do come with both a sheath and fold up to use the pocket clip, both of which features are awesome, but because of the dimensions, you will not be able to put them in your standard shears pocket, so you will have to either carry them folded in a pocket or on the sheath.
        The sheath itself is impressively versatile, completely adjustable for carry in any position including up-side down (I use the inverted carry for easy access on my bunker gear suspenders, under my fire coat), and malle/pals comparable as well!
        I love the simple features and versitality, I'm not sure how you could incorporate them into dimensions that would fit an ems pocket, but that hasn't stopped me from carrying them folded with the pocket clip in my back pocket.

          Comments about Raptor:

          I am impressed with this tool. Every feature is well thought out, and extremely useful. The tool itself is slightly heavier than a typical pair of trauma shears, but that's acceptable to me. When is the last time you needed to transport a patient with O2, but couldn't find a tank? Inevitably when you do find a tank it will be empty. Gotta change the regulator over to a full tank, but where is that darn O2 key? Now I have one integrated into the system. When is the last time you tried to cut some heavy blue jeans and watched your shears struggle and gum up with the heavy material? These shears have heavy duty cutting blades that are very sharp, keep a keen edge, and take a new one without problem. The ruler is extremely useful, from marching out that 12 lead, to accurately documenting the size of that lac. Overall I am very pleased and can easily recommend this tool.
