- The chisel end and the nail claw end are both sharpened so the edges can easily be wedged behind ledges, planks, mouldings, etc.

- Both the chisel end and the nail claw end are designed with broad surface to provide minimal damage and marring to the work area.

- Manufactured by Gränsfors Smide, Sweden since 1942, a sister company of axe makers Gransfors Bruk

- The nail claw has a precision angled V-slot design to allow nails to be pulled regardless of the size of the head.

TOVE wrecking bars are forged by hand therefore length and weight is not 100% exact.

Made of specially alloyed spring steel. The overall bar is tempered for extra strength.

Key characteristics are:

- Extreme strength in relation to length and low weight.

- In tests performed by the National Swedish Institute for Material testing, Tove wrecking bars were found to withstand extreme strain without yielding.

  • Effortless de-nailing

    My first impressions of the 25'' Tove wrecking bar were very good. The build quality is excellent (forging and finish), to be honest it's what I've come to expect from Swedish forges such as Gransfors Bruk as I now have 3 of their axes! I understand they're actually made by a sister company (Svedbro Smide is stamped on the claw end). These wrecking bars certainly aren't cheap but you get what you pay for and personally I'd rather pay more for high quality hand tools, look after them, get much pleasure from using them and they'll hopefully last a lifetime.

    With the price of logs and other fuels reaching ridiculous heights I've started gathering my own wood, which is great but has left me with a lack of storage space to season the logs. Again with the prices of timber being sky high I decided to build my own storage shelters from pallet wood and creosote them. I started to dismantle pallets with a cheap wrecking bar only to splinter and break nearly all the planks! That's when I ordered the 25'' Tove wrecking bar. I have now dismantled quite a few pallets with ease and with very few breakages. the claw end of the bar is 2'' wide and ground to a sharp edge allowing the effort to be spread and reducing damage. The bar can also be used for relatively effortless de-nailing. I've been using a wooden mallet to beat the working end of the bar between the timber to be separated as I haven't the heart to use a lump hammer on such a lovely tool but that's just me and the mallet works fine!!

    I'm certain that this bar would be perfect for lifting floorboards, removing skirting boards or any other dismantling tasks where minimal damage is important. The bars come in various sizes, I settled on the 25'' to give decent leverage but also to fit in a rucksack.

    On the whole it's another great piece of hand forged kit from Sweden.
