Instead of incorporating a useless pair of tiny scissors into a multi-tool, Leatherman has used a pair of industrial-looking snips as the base for its new Raptor tool.

Designed for medics and rescue personnel, the Raptor incorporates a strap cutter, a carbide glass breaker, a ring cutter, a wrench, and a ruler into a pair of medical-grade shears. When it's available next May for a still to be determined price, it looks like it could be a must-have addition to any first aid kit. But with a clever folding design and an included moulded holster, there's no reason you can't always keep one within easy reach on your belt. [Uncrate]
