Is there a "right way"/"wrong way" to pry with it (other than hold onto the spine, not the blade). My intuition would be to use it beveled side up, but that's not how it's used in the video -- am I wrong?

I think it would probably depend on what you were prying. If it were a nail on a flat surface you would want the chisel side down to give you a little lift.....I think.

Beveled side up is how I use a prybar also.
It just depends on what you're prying I guess.
Opening cans it doesn't matter,opening crates/pulling staples out of boxs,bevel up.

Oh and BTW there will be a left handed version with the wedge grind on the opposite side.

Wow, a left handed version!!!!!

BUMP!

I can't quit thinking about how many of these I need to get <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

It will be super fun watching all of the Dogs get creative on modifying these little beasts! I can't wait to see all of the unique ideas. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbup.gif" alt="" />

The chief cause of unhappiness and failure is trading what you want most in life for what you want at the moment.

Most prybars have a curved head for leverage. This necker simply allows for prying small jobs so wedge down provides best results. You can always order a left handed verson if you need the wedge up...in your right hand...got ya covered <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

For me this is the most anticipated release of a knife that I can remember ... considering that I've been into quality blades for more than 12 years and knives in general for 30 years (1st knife at 8 and I'm 38 today!) that says a lot for me.

I'm a tile setter and am on all types of job sites everyday. There are probably over a 1000 tools on my truck and most of them get used.

I cut and pry all day long in one way or another so this one will be a gem!

Did I mention I cant wait !!!!!


There is no rest for the wicked !
