Japanese Tiger Paw/Pry Bar

Small enough to fit in your tool bag. The flared end gets thinner and thinner towards the edge and is great for removing base trim with minimal damage. It is also a scraper and a wedge. The nail puller is oriented 90 degrees to the pry bar. Women in the trades really like them because they are strong and lightweight. As a do-it-yourselfer and a woman, smaller smart tools like this one get my attention.
