Product Description

The Leatherman RAPTOR EMS Trauma Shears Multi-Tool is designed with the perfect balance of tools and functionality. The Public Safety Store has partnered with LEATHERMAN to offer this tool at a price that can't be beat!

The Leatherman Raptor shears features the necessary tools for uniformed medical professionals to safely and quickly go to work in an emergency situation. From the battlefield to the streets, the Leatherman Raptor was specifically designed with the input of special operations medics, EMTs and fire professionals. They were amiliar with standard medical shears and the Raptor was crafted with just the right balance of multipurpose features for medical-specific ops without an overkill of tools to complicate sometimes life-threatening situations. When it's a question of survival, the Raptor answers loud and clear.


Materials 420HC Stainless Steel

An improved, high-carbon (HC) form of 420 stainless steel that works well with high production tooling. 420HC's strength is optimized in Leatherman multi-tools by heat treatment.

Glass-filled Nylon

A thermoplastic material where strength is improved by adding chopped glass fibers. This allows for excellent durability without adding significant weight. In Leatherman knives, the glass-filled nylon handles are so strong that an inner steel frame is not required, thereby reducing weight for a lighter every day carry. Leatherman uses a 60% glass mix.


One of the hardest materials in the world outside of diamond, tungsten carbide is used as a tool to effectively and safely break auto glass and is available on Leatherman first responder tools.

I am a Firefighter Paramedic. I use shears all of the time in my profession. It is nice to have a pair of shears that are versatile and easy to get to during calls.

My only complaint is about the Kydex Holster. It does not fit on a standard duty belt. I wish the belt clip was approximately 1/4" to 1/2" taller. Otherwise this tool is fanatastic! Very sharp!

I bought the Raptor for my son who is an Army Medic. He loves it. It is a part of his Aid Bag. From his reaction, I would definitely purchase another one.

I own the original Leatherman (aka The Ultimate Survival Tool), the Super Leatherman, the 300 and the Raptors. I was able to retire my Vietnam era shears. The Raptors and new Miltex shears are "up front".

My only question was:" What took soo long" ?

I carry the Raptor trauma shears multi-tool on me every shift. Less common on Fire/Rescue and EMS rigs probably, but it's amazing how in an Emergency Department, often when you need this basic necessity for rapid exposure of injuries covered by clothing, or when casting/splinting or even applying basic wound dressings, a pair of good (and sharp) trauma shears can be hard to find (that would never have flown back when we were residents).

I was lucky one of my physician colleagues was carrying some one shift when I borrowed them, and immediately once in my hand, the balance and weight perfect, as they sliced through the thick, padded, fiberglass splinting splinting material effortlessly, I knew I had to get a pair. Once things settled down a bit, I actually went and found my co-worker again just to finish checking them out. I was really impressed with how thoughtful their design was as an emergency medicine and rescue multitool with each and every feature high quality and useful, in true Leatherman fashion, none of them flimsy or half-hearted after thoughts; all well designed and fabricated tools in their own right.

Easy to carry whether using the clip on the tool itself or the rugged holster (initially a bit difficult to remove and replace the tool in and out of it, that went away after the first day of use), they are light and compact, folding and unfolding quick and easy.

Very sharp and capable shears with high level of precision in the blade effacement when scissoring (action a little stiffer than the cheap ones for this reason, but I'd choose the greater precision when cutting that they offer and strengthen my grip a bit over sloppy blade effacement anytime). The "belt-cutter" is likewise sharp and capable, and depending on the clothing and occasion, sometimes the tool of choice for zipping open the pant leg of a pair of jeans to get at an unstable fracture or other injury ASAP.

ECG ruler on the blade? Brilliant inclusion! Better than calipers (one more tool none of us carry anymore otherwise, but would love to have when trying to figure out if that rhythm is atrial fibrillation vs. second or third degree block for example)

Including the ring cutter as well was a brilliant add, and I feel a little guilty about my newfound anticipation to lay waste to a wedding band in the name of saving a finger.

Lastly, let's be honest, who of us doesn't love the fact that it puts a real life, functional "Transformer" on our belt or in our pocket?

My only suggestions for consideration by Leatherman would be:
1. Either add a little rubber on the outside of one of the handles to double as the striking surface of a reflex hammer vs. offer an attachable accessory for this purpose.
- As is, the handle doesn't have enough weight or protection to really use the Raptor for this, but again, part of that I'm sure is to keep the tool as light and compact as possible, and the added weight/bulk that this would add would likely be a turn off for tactical and pre-hospital rescue/EMS providers, so no complaints here. An ER Doc like myself however, would find it really useful.

2. If there were a way to add a useful blade to this tool to double as a pocket knife, it would always be with me even on those precious "off-days". As is though, I'm never without it when I work.

You know have the battle of using equipment is carrying it so its available when you need it. The raptor solves the problem. Compact folded and light weight to carry, but there when you need full sized full functional strong scissors.
well engineered piece of equipment

Great product, my son rolled his ankle playing football and after practice and games he uses the raptor to easily and safely cut off the multiple wraps of tape supporting his ankle. Only quirk is you cannot fold one handle when the seat belt cutter is deployed, the cutter blocks one of the handle's lock tab. The holster was extremely well thought out.

This tool is an essential and everyday tool for anyone in the medical field. I use my shears on a daily basis. As an ER nurse, these shears stand up to the daily wear and tear, trauma situations, and even vigorous cleaning after being used. These shears are just as important to me as my stethoscope. Worth Every Penny!!

I had been looking at these shears since they first rolled out in 2013, but at first they were hard to find and the price seemed pretty high.
I finally broke down and coughed up the price for the Raptor and retired my set of shears that have lasted me several years but were due for replacement.
The fit and function of the Raptor is great, with some cool extra tools. It is a little hard to get them out of the sheath as it generally takes two hands to release and remove, but I can live with this.
