This is another tool I purchased for my Bug Out Bag, and I bought it from County Comm in 2009.
This sub-compact breaching tool was developed by EOD Robotics with input from Bomb Techs, SWAT Operators and Patrol Officers. The requirement was for a tool for prying, cutting and pounding, and this is what they came up with.
Made From 1045 High Carbon Steel and Fully Heat Treated To A Rockwell Hardness of Over 45.
The EOD Robotics Mid- Breach Bar comes ready to go as a pry bar or lever. Ideal for opening crates and even punching through steel drums etc. The coffin corner back edge lends itself to a hammer nicely.
This does not come as pictured with the paracord wrap, but the 2 inner holes in the handle can like you see here as a simple handle wrap. The hole towards the top of the blade and the one on the end are good for lashing it onto a shaft, tree branch etc.The end hole is geared for hanging it up or for attaching a lanyard so you do not lose it in that pit or in the water.
The top edge can be hammered on as can the back end. And then you can use your imagination to do other things with it.
The point of the tool is to not use your primary knife as a pry bar, hammering on it or otherwise abusing it. Primary knifes are typically not all that cheap, but this tool here is under $10 and you can abuse it all day long and not feel bad about it.
Some people have modified these tools and converted them into knives, saws, or both, so it's a small tool that can be made to suit your needs without destrying your good knife.
