I have the large one. It's a fine wrecking tool. I've done great

demo work with it. It is designed to twist 2X4s out of a framed

wall. Also has great weight for breaking and forcing. Sort of

like a light-weight Halligan. You can also swing it like a hammer,

but two-handed. The @ 3 pounds of weight lands a stiff blow

to standard walls or doors.

I had the 18". Took it back. I have a pr. Of Channel locks, a Pipe Wrench, a pr. Of Cutters, and a 3' breaker bar/mini Sledge hammer. I also have stuff for more "Delicate" work. As for at home, I'm slowly "Rebuilding" my bench...

There are a few smaller items that can be useful and won't break the bank and also fit in a medium sized duffle. The items below can be had for around $20-30 each on sale. The first is an Estwing axe and the other is a DeWalt pry bar. Both were purchased at Home Depot while on sale. The back of the axe can be used to drive the pry bar into door frames or anything frozen that's supposed to open. Axe is alternative entry tool and firewood producer, saving the weight of a hammer. If you anticipate chains being a problem, I would suggest adding a short bolt cutter, but good ones can run a C-note or better.

The yellow one is a "I ain't dun nuttin'" tool. Usually found in the back pockets of innocent folk out in people's backyards doin nuttin'...

Which just proves a point of consumerism - Use what the professionals use!

The flat bar is pretty handy. It will pry open windows without tearing up the window. One could easily pry off door trim. Then they could find an improvised hammer to chisel the dead bolt free. In a SHTF situation it would be light to carry.

The Eastwing hatchet. I have a Coleman one that is just like it. I also have a very strong Coleman folding Camp Saw. Yesterday and last weekend I was trimming trees with it, since I don't have a Pole Saw or a Chain Saw( no offense meant to Poles, they have enough problems these days).

Forgive me for asking the obvious question, but what would your intended uses be?

The bar you posted about is not a forcible entry tool. It's a demo tool. Are you planning to scavenge supplies in a SHTF scenario? Are you planning to use it to claim shelter without being obvious about it? Are you wanting it for breaking into vehicles? All three of my suggested uses could be done better and with less risk of injury by using a different tool.

What do you want to do with it?

How would you plan to carry all that heavy stuff? The hatchet and small flat pry bar make a lot more sense.

If you're replying to me I completely agree with you. The problem is that depending on what he intends to use them for there may be even better tools available.

If he wrote a post asking us what we thought of paracord many of us would tell him it's great stuff and handy to have around. Keep in mind he hasn't told us what he wants to use it for. What if he wanted it to lower his kids out of his 5th floor apartment window in the event of a fire. Paracord isn't so good anymore.
