Save Hand Fatigue vs. Shears: The TRECK is specifically designed to cut single to multiple layers of clothing, thick jackets, motorcycle leathers, leather jackets, wetsuits, hazmat suits, turnout gear and racing uniforms without shears.

No Blade Changes: Replace your TRECK about half as often as shears. The TRECK uses a patented, corrosion-resistant, Polymer-coated, award-winning Rapid Edge® heavy-duty razor blade. The serrated design has 5 cutting surface layers, so it stays sharp longer than any other utility razor bladeThe polymer coating reduces friction and cuts more evenly.  Works well on cotton, denim, leather, nylon and a wide range of hard to cut materials.
