    Pry bar...

    Looking for peoples experiences wih small pry bars. Looking for something small to take on trips where I know there is a bit of heavy work to be done but don't want a full length crowbar. Have snapped the tip of more than one knife doing things they aren't designed for.

    Thinking something around 30cm or smaller. Got the top gear add emailed out to me and they have a Gerber one but not been impressed ordering through them in he past but it is what got me thinking...

    Good thing about these is you can hammer them in if there is no gap to get in

    Mitre 10 Mega and Hayes have got those bars Moutere mentioned. But they're orange. I know orange isn't as strong as blue though.....

    @223nut

    Make one.

    Find an old car that's not being used, one with rear leaf springs........ Mums one will do.

    Rip out the leaf springs, make a fire, heat up one of the leaves, grab a hammer and something to beat it against and forge yourself a pry bar.

    Cheers
