A Bit of History

Crowbars as construction tools date back to at least the 1400s, when the tool was known as a crow. The name of the tool referenced the forked end of the crowbar, which resembles the foot of a crow. In the mid 1700s, the tool came to be known as a crow bar, presumably to eliminate confusion between the animal and the construction tool. In the 1800s, the terms crow-bar and crowbar began to emerge.

In 2004, a new and far superior design, the "Bruno Bar" was brought to market. The Bruno Bar is a type of tool used to pry objects apart, remove nails, and for general demolition. A crowbar can be found in most construction tool kits because it can be used in a wide variety of applications.

The Bruno Bar is a "must have" in every carpenter and contractor arsenal. Bruno Bars come in a number of different sizes and weights, depending on how the tool will be used, and some carpenters have more than one so that they can use the right Bruno Bar for the job.
