A great choice for emergency workers, these bandage scissors are made from surgical grade Japanese stainless steel, these bandage scissors are great in almost any weather conditions. The bend of the blade and the slightly-longer-than-normal 6-inch length make them efficient and easy-to-use. They're made from the same metal commonly used in diving knives. They have a special coating that will keep adhesive backed bandages or tape from clinging to the blades. The handles have a comfort coating.
