Wrecking Bar, Pry Bars, and Levers

Crow Bars

A crowbar, also known as a pry bar, wrecking bar, gorilla bar, or pinch bar, represents a metallic tool featuring flattened points at both ends, often accompanied by a small fissure aiding in nail removal or the separation of materials or objects.

One end of the bar typically curves into a hook shape, functioning as a first-class lever and serving as the more commonly utilized end, while the straighter flat end operates as a second-class lever. (Legend holds that the hooked end's resemblance to a crow's beak is the origin of the tool's name.)

Crowbars are commonly crafted from medium carbon steel to ensure sustained strength and durability. Alternatively, some are made from titanium, resulting in a lighter-weight tool. Forging involves long steel products such as rods and rails, and crowbars often feature cylindrical or hexagonal body shapes.
