In a trauma situation it comes through like a saint. Grab hold of El Santo™ emergency trauma shears with your right or left hand and you'll see how this multi-tool got its name. Cut straps. Break glass. Start up the oxygen. Those in need will think someone's looking out for them. That someone is you. El Santo™ was designed by Michael Martinez of Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has a long history of creating revolutionary blades that fit the needs of those in tactical settings. So when a trauma surgeon came to him with an idea for a better tool to be used in a life or death situations, the next evolution in emergency shears was born. You never know what will get thrown your way in a trauma situation. That's why El Santo™ features a variety of cutting tools. A removable and replaceable ripping blade has a series of micro-Veff Serrations™ that enables you to tear through corded leather, nylon or belts. Lengthened shear blades with a tapered porpoise nose easily slip under clothing and provide increased leverage so you can cut the most important thing—time. The rippling blade is even easy to swap out with a "no tool" needed screws and replacement part. The ribbed utility grip handle on El Santo™ feels like it was meant just for you. It's ergonomically designed to be an ambidextrous trauma shear with equal cutting and ripping ability in either hand . Close the handle around your belt and secure the blade lock. Then feel confident someone up there likes you with El Santo™ by your side. *Product materials not suited to tolerate the Autoclave sterilization process.
