`My daughters starting EMT next week and in need of the scissors they use by February.
We are eyeballing the Leatherman Raptor scissors and wondering if it's overkill at $75 a pop locally.
Worth the money?
I have seen several nurses with these or similar scissors, a lot less impact if they are lost.The $8 Maratec shears are fully adequate for school purposes. I would get her two pairs.
Avoid the El Cheapo Pakistani single-use disposable $3 shears! The Maratecs are inexpensive enough to buy and stash multiples everywhere and they will stand some abuse. They are decent quality, but can still be considered disposable, so you won't cry when somebody walks off with them.I have seen several nurses with these or similar scissors, a lot less impact if they are lost.
