Leatherman Raptor: The Nicest Medical Shears I’ve Seen Yet

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars

I believe having a solid medical kit in your car is a must. Part of that kit should be some kind of medical shears, and the Leatherman Raptor shears are pretty amazing. They fold and fit in to the multi-position sheath, but they can also be placed in the sheath when they are fully opening. There’s a ring cutter, a strap cutter (which can be used when they are closed or open), and they have a ruler on the lower of the two blades. They now come in orange or coyote brown, and I am looking forward to getting my hands on these. Check them out.

Interested in purchasing this item? They are currently available only in black (the orange and the coyote brown will be out in a few months). The black Raptors from Leatherman are available in the link below, and purchasing them via this link will help to support Everyday Tactical Vids:

  2. The only problem with the leatherman raptor is you can’t sterilize it in an autoclave like you can with ripshears which are a much faster trauma shear
