One of the original "Irons". Often used in a wedge & sledge combination with a flat head axe. Now specified by fire departments that want a rugged forcible entry tool without the protruding point found on the "Hooligan" type tools.
Both the adz end and claw are drop forged from high alloy steel. The adz and claw have been machine sharpened for easy access to a prying point. Both ends are press fitted for easy access to a 1" (2.5cm) stress proof steel bar with machine grooved hand grips. The adz end extends into a protruding hammer head to be used as a striking tool or receive hammer blows. The claw has a recessed nail puller and is parallel slotted to slip over locks, hasps and many gas shutoffs.
