EOD Robotics developed this compact breaching tool with input from Bomb Techs, SWAT Operators and Patrol Officers. All these folks need a tool for prying, cutting and pounding, and here's the answer.
We have some very good friends that are active C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team) members. They asked us to modify the EOD Robotics Breacher Bar to include a wrench for residential gas shut off valves. We modified a few, and then received a order to produce them in quantity for a entire team in Southern California.
Now we produce this very popular pry bar/utility tool exclusively for C.E.R.T. Personnel and those looking for some extra versatility shutting off gas valves, prying, cutting and pounding during emergencies.
Breacher & CERT Bar: 8.5" Long
Mid Breach: 6.5" Long
Here's What Our Over-Protective Legal Department Has To Say:
Although the EOD Breacher Tool was developed and designed to enter the real world of urban combat, and with a little work with a file, belt sander, grinder, stone or a rock to it could be sharpened and converted to a Deadly stabbing or slashing instrument we can't recommend it. Likewise, the flat on the handle end should not be used as a skull or rib crusher or for performing other blunt trauma. Sorry these are not returnable. Be safe, and don't play with matches or run with scissors.
I got this because it was cool and I sometimes need to enter my properties without keys due to poor intentioned tenants, this thing is fantastic. I filed the chisel tip/end so it can scrape and chisel, also sharpened the longer "knife" edge to act more of an axe. Its wonderful, it comes into play almost as much as my multi tool!! I also volunteer EMT's and the oxygen wrench is so useful. I only hope you all get with it and combine sheath, belt clip and tool so we dont have to make separate purchases. My fault not reading thoroughly, but the pictures are also a bit misleading. I dont want to complain, just you all are aware, and I've seen other reviews saying the same. Anyway, love all your stuff, thanks.
This thing takes a little while on the bench grinder and it sharpens up great. It also looks good with gun blueing and it takes a good polish. I wrapped the grip with leather soaked in epoxy. It feels AWSOME to use and the balance is great.
Beasty little prybar.
It fits in my system exactly where I wanted it to.
