With a ballpoint to blade guide, a polymer coated blade and a new O2 key, this clothing knife is a cost-effective, yet powerful tool to assist a responder in exposing a wound. It is easy, fast and safe to use, providing smooth cuts.
The Talon Rescue Emergency Clothing Knife is an alternative to trauma shears and seat belt cutters, specifically designed by EMTs, paramedics, and firefighters to simultaneously remove multiple layers of clothing, racing uniforms, leathers, turnout gear, and other obstructions from a trauma patient without the use of trauma shears.
With most articles of clothing and equipment, the initial cut and repetitive motions of squeezing the shears with your thumb and finger can be unsafe, tiring, and time consuming. Shears can and sometimes do fail, and ripping can be a mess or not an option with many materials such as leather.
