Rip Shears are the world’s fastest trauma shears! Rip Shears enable emergency medical personal to drastically reduce the critical time required to access and treat wound sites under multiple layers of clothing, equipment or body armor. Just snip and rip! Originally designed and tested by U.S. Navy SEALs to perform in the harshest environments. The Ripper unit is 100% made in the USA and features replaceable blades. Ripper blades are made from 440A surgical-grade stainless steel for durability and corrosion-resistance, receive a proprietary treatment to improve cutting ability and edge retention, making them last five times longer than standard carbon steel blades.
