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.
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 tool.

Fantastic quality, tough enough for anything you can throw at them!! Makes short work of even top quality biking leathers, flux through almost anything. They're not the cheapest, but are well worth the investment. Only improvement would be if they came with a lanyard to ensure you don't misplace them.
I still have my first weatherman when it arrived in the marketplace in the 1980s. these folks know how to make a tool that lasts. I have only returned one tool, for repair, over the years. It arrived in good as new shape. If you want a pair of shears that will keep up with a full shift of EMS work, these are the ones.
So i needed some trauma sheers for work. I am a Security Officer / EMT. I hesitated because of the price but after my first official use of the product I would not hesitate to purchase them again. Very strong, very durable and look sweet. Company response t orders is outstanding.
FINALLY got my hands on a set of these after reading all of the reviews. Tested the cutter on an old web belt. Zipped right through it even though it was double thick. The shears have zipped through everything I threw at them. These things really built like a tank. I honestly feel like these will be the last trauma shears I ever buy.
Raptor is a great design that suitable for most first responder of different spectrums. I would suggest the uses to use blue (non-permanent) threadlocker glue on the holster screw to prevent unintentional detach. Also putting on an elastic sling is a good idea in case the shear falling out from the holster.
I'm glad to see Leatherman bringing quality *new* products to market. Although their tools have always been of high quality, some of their recent attempts felt a little light in design, didn't address a need or was plain over priced. The Raptor is a high quality, simple tool with performance that just leaves one wondering why it took so long. Heck, any *man* (you ladies too) would be proud to cut a piece of paper in public with these -- no reason to bring out the 12in blade. Well worth the $70 asking price.
