EMS shears are an important tool for the EMT. I have previously purchased several pairs of these because I have a tendency to lend them or lose them on scenes. The shears I received this time are totally junk. The quality has taken a nosedive. The rivet is much smaller. The shears themselves are much lighter weight. The ones I previously purchased were 2.25 oz., these are only 1.65 oz. The rivet is smaller, they do not open as widely. the clothing protector tip is smaller, the handles are smaller. I get better shears as giveaways at seminars and conferences.
I plan to return these because they are not worth carrying.
