El Santo™ was designed by Michael Martinez of Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has a long history of creating revolutionary blades that fit the needs of those in tactical settings. So when a trauma surgeon came to him with an idea for a better tool to be used in a life or death situations, the next evolution in emergency shears was born.
You never know what will get thrown your way in a trauma situation. That’s why El Santo™ features a variety of cutting tools. A removable and replaceable ripping blade has micro-Veff Serrations™ that enables you to tear through corded leather, nylon or belts. Lengthened shear blades with a tapered porpoise nose easily slip under clothing and provide increased leverage so you can cut the most important thing—time. The rippling blade is even easy to swap out with a “no tool” needed screws and replacement part.
The ribbed utility grip handle on El Santo™ feels like it was meant just for you. It’s ergonomically designed to be an ambidextrous trauma shear with equal cutting and ripping ability in either hand .
Close the handle around your belt and secure the blade lock. Then feel confident someone up there likes you with El Santo™ by your side.

Art meets science in the Martinez family. A noted sculptor and former student of R.C. Gorman, Michael specializes in large-scale bronze casting. His father, Baltazar, worked for the defense department for more than 30 years and taught Math for Engineering Design at MIT. Sadly, Baltazar has since passed. Together, they were like the yin and the yang of design, successfully combining form and function with great designs that live on in tribute like the CRKT® Ultima™.
