      Comments about Raptor:

      Great product, my son rolled his ankle playing football and after practice and games he uses the raptor to easily and safely cut off the multiple wraps of tape supporting his ankle. Only quirk is you cannot fold one handle when the seat belt cutter is deployed, the cutter blocks one of the handle's lock tab. The holster was extremely well thought out.

      Comments about Raptor:

      This tool is an essential and everyday tool for anyone in the medical field. I use my shears on a daily basis. As an ER nurse, these shears stand up to the daily wear and tear, trauma situations, and even vigorous cleaning after being used. These shears are just as important to me as my stethascope. Worth Every Penny!!

      Comments about Raptor:

      I had been looking at these shears since they first rolled out in 2013, but at first they were hard to find and the price seemed pretty high.
      I finally broke down and coughed up the price for the Raptor and retired my set of shears that have lasted me several years but were due for replacement.
      The fit and function of the Raptor is great, with some cool extra tools. It is a little hard to get them out of the sheath as it generally takes two hands to release and remove, but I can live with this.
      My main issue, which is why it gets 3 stars at best, is that I have had it for less than a month and as near as I can tell it has not yet been exposed any water issues but I noticed that it started having rust spots appear.
      I called the manufacturer about this and their response was to direct me to the support section of their website and the care and cleaning of their tools.
      They could not explain to me why, after having this tool for less than a month and taking pretty good care with it, especially for what it cost, why it would already have corrosion issues.
      They offered for me to return it to where I bought it at my expense, if they would take it back, or return it to the manufacturer at my expense, to have them see if they would warranty it, which would leave me without the very expensive tool that I had just bought based in part for the manufacturers reputation and warranty. They would not say how long of a turn around time this would take.
      As I can not be without a decent set of shears, I did use a scothcbrite pad to clean off the rust spots, at least the ones that I could reach with the pad and reoiled the tool. My issue with this is that even though I was careful, there is still a chance that abrasive particles could still be in the joints of the tool and now the finish of the product is uneven where it was abraded.
      I have not yet decided what to do about this tools future, but I can say that I am disappointed in the manufacturers handling of this issue.
      Maybe I should just stay with same type of shears as they did not have a single issue, other than wearing out after many years of hard use.
