CR5007: El Santo Emergency Shears, Designed by Michael Martinez
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. Whether cutting straps or breaking glass, it won't let you down. Those in need will think someone's looking out for them.
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 small serration 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.
