The idea to have a shears in place 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 the air turbulence may fly it away, sometimes against the rescuer too, causing injury.
Lobster is also indicated for novices in water sports situations, when they are in trouble, they have to cut ropes but they are not so “cold blood” to work with the “opened blade” of a rescue knife!
