R368.00

BLADE: 50 mm - OVERALL: 170 mm - WEIGHT: 110 g - Professional shears with anti-injury square-pointed blades for a powerful and safe cutting edge on ropes and cables up to 10-12 mm diameter. BLADES: Hardened Aisi 420 steel LOCKING DEVICE: Metallic HANDLE: Polypropylene, Orange Colour CENTRAL SCREW: Fixed with locking-nut The idea to have a shears in stead of a knife comes from the helicopter rescue teams, usually involved with ropes in mountain rescue operations, where they have to cut ropes but they cannot have a pointed cutting tool because of air turbulence, in case the rescuer may cause injury. Lobster is also indicated for novices in situations, where they are in trouble and have to cut ropes but are not confident enough to work with the “open blade” of a rescue knife!
