I love the weight of titanium and I'm horrified at the price, for a pry bar. Other (smaller!) titanium tools I've owned were not, perhaps, as rugged as I would have liked them to be.

Titanium pens are an addiction for me though.

Titanium bars

I guess the relative shortness limits how much force they have to endure.

None of the links here show truly tactical prybars. As we all know, tactical means black. I'll be glad to sell you tactical black paint to overcome this incredible shortcoming. Even the lettering on the can is black on black, for a more authentic tactical feel.

To be TRUELY tactical it needs a Picatinney rail system, and a cordura sheath with velcro.

I can't find a mention of size or weight in the pry bar link, but I do have several full-size versions of these "modern" pry bars and LOVE them.

BUT years back when hand digging for our barn's frost-proof water hydrant (many years ago) we found only one hand tool that could dig through the heavy midwestern clay --- a non-curved claw hammer. We basically used the claw like a small pick and chipped away at the stubborn clay just a bit at a time - using a shovel to remove the chips from the trench.

I never had - nor tried - using a full sized pick, but I suspect the weight would have tired us out faster in the long run.

Is this the black 2.0 I've been hearing about? wink

Absorbs 99.4% of light, so completely hides any surface contours of an object that is painted with it.

Eg. Ping pong ball

Just looks like a 2 dimensional black dot.
