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.
Made from 1045 high carbon steel and fully heat treated to a Rockwell hardness of over 45.
The EOD Robotics Breacher Bar & CERT Bar come ready to go as a pry bar or lever. Ideal for opening crates and even punching through steel drums etc. The coffin corner back edge lends itself to a hammer nicely.
The 2 inner holes in the handle can be for paracord or solid slabs or whatever you like. The hole towards the top of the blade and the one on the end are good for lashing it onto a shaft, tree branch etc. The end hole is geared for hanging it up or for attaching a lanyard so you do not lose it in that pit or in the water.
The top edge can be hammered on as can the back end. And then you can use your imagination to do other things with it. (Makes a good wood chisel too!).
Bars do not come with cord wrapped handles. You will receive the metal bar. The rest is up to you.
Not pretty, but pretty handy. These were bulk packed for shipment to the military so they may have some rub marks where they have rubbed together in transit.
Made in USA
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.
