    All my IFAKs have a generic pair of trauma shears I picked up in the pharmacy section of the local Meijer. I think they were under $10.

    A lot of the taticool medical folks like the Leatherman Raptor shears because they fold up compact and have multiple tools.

    Personally I think the ~ $60+.price tag is pretty salty considering I don't make a living working out of the back of an ambulance.
    Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong,
    seldom turns out the way it does in a song.

    I carry ones I got from NAR, and a set of mini ones that came with my Ryker AFAK. Iíve looked at the Raptor, but likeMCgrease08 wasnít willing to spend the coin.

    I have the same ones from meijer they have a grey and yellow handle. I've used one pair a couple of times and they've never not cut. I have cut a seatbelt, the tops off a pair of cowboy boots and denim no problem.

    You wouldn't use them then either. You'd use the ones supplied to you and toss them after you used them.
    Medium speed. Moderate drag.

    I usually get the not-quite-the-cheapest ones. Doesn't hurt as much when they disappear.

    Check out the Benchmade Rescue Hook as well.

    after 25 yrs in EMS these are all I will use. Those cheap ones are good for a few incidents and then a PIA. If you pay more your more apt to keep track of them. Same philosophy I used for buying Oakley.

    I get a pair every time I order from NAR. I have probably ten pair in my bag and I use them until theyíre either blood soaked or donít work well, then I toss em and start on a new pair.
