You ought to see the version for emergency personnel (and those that want to REALLY tear something up)!

There I was, headed back to Iraq, and I wanted to have a hatchet or some such with me for various reasons.
I went to Home Depot, the best place for "Found Weaponry", and voila!
There was this nifty item:
Amazon.com: Stanley 55-099 FatMax Xtreme Fubar Functional Utility Bar: Home Improvement
I fell in love right away. I cadged a generic CamelBak holster out of a dumpster in Kuwait, and it fit perfectly on my back.
Not only is it very effective at breaching (and a heck of a lot cheaper than the "kits" available from Blackhawk!), it saved our behinds in Ar Ramadi when the drive shaft fell out the bottom of my Humvee. In the middle of the Red Zone. In the middle of the Main Drag.
It knocked the shaft loose, and "unfroze" the tow pintle to rig-for-tow.
I still keep it in my truck (now a Ford Explorer) for whatever comes around the bend, be it a busted drive shaft, a cantankerous piece of inoperative metal, or the errant BG at the window.
Apparently, Stanley (the manufacturer) listened to our praise of the item, as they now offer the same thing in a slightly different configuration especially for breaching and such, but at a remarkably higher price.
Look up the Stanley FatMax FuBar for all the purchase options.
Good for your home, vehicle, or BOB!

Don’t mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

The price is right too.
Anything called Fubar has got to be good.
that's pretty cool. i'm sure i could find some use for it.

More than a few people in my agency have bought those as personal tools.
I have one that I bought on Amazon shortly after it was marketed. I've used it once to remove some 2 x 4's in a small storage building. It's a great tool. You can clasp a 2 x 4 and twist and maneuver it out. It can take the place of a nail remover and crowbar.
Anything that has that many uses and obviously can tear stuff up that well has to be a great tool. I want one so I can start breaking stuff. LOL

It's an awesome tool, take it from a home wrecker....Ughh, I mean renovator.
