I work on a unit with 6 people and bought all 7 of us an engraved pair for Christmas. Not only were they sturdy as described and beautifully engraved, but they arrived within 3 days at no extra cost! 7 engraved pairs ran me less than $150 and all the guys loved them. More importantly... No more fighting over cuffs lol. Side note: they do come extra oiled up so make sure you give them a good wipe so your first arrestee does slip out haha
Most all police dept issue cuffs that Ive seen are S&W or Peerless nickel PLATED for a price of around $50.00 These are STAINLESS STEEL... an upgrade which cannot be over-stated! I have pairs of blued, plated and stainless cuffs all three that I have used almost daily for 24 yrs; with only the stainless pair looking nearly identical to brand-new with virtually NO signs of wear! And for 15 bucks (on sale) these generic, made in Taiwan cuffs craftsmanship & functionality appear commensurate with all competitors. If all major US cities made these cuffs standard issue, the savings realized to their combined cuff budgets (in both new issue as well as repairs/maintenance) would be in the tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands of $!
