Ripshears Tactical Trauma Scissors

Jan 3, 2018

Whether you’re a soldier, hunter, outdoorsman, or whatever – the speed at which you can get to and treat an injury in the field can be the difference between life and death. Unfortunately, thick gear can make cleaning and binding a wound difficult or even impossible. That is, unless you have a pair of Ripshears handy.

More of a multi-tool than a pair of scissors, these TiCN-coated surgical stainless-steel shears feature four built-in tools: scissors, a safety knife/seatbelt ripper, an oxygen wrench, and a reflex hammer. Best of all, they’re built to swap between them on-the-fly, making quick work in any emergency. That means, if you’re trying to tear through cloth with the safety knife and hit a snag, you can switch over to the scissors – which are strong enough to cut through a penny – and get back to saving lives. While the Ripshears easily fit into your average MOLLE grid, there’s also an option for a Kydex sheath, so you can always keep them on-hand. Get a pair now for $31.
