    I'd never use them for pryers, but these two might hold up pretty well.

    +1 for Cold Steel. Used the GI Tanto to pry open all the painted shut windows in the apartment I moved into a few years back.

    It contain Makers Mark on that trip I recall.

    To be honest, I don't consider folders to fit in this category when a inexpensive fixed blade will take abuse no "over built" folder would tolerate. Folders are like pistols, they exist for their convenience and mobility and such (also debatable, but another topic for another day...) but if one has a choice, they always take a long gun over a pistol or a fixed blade over a folder.

    Just my opinion, your mileage may vary. :cool:

    I don't have any large or expensive 'sharpened pry bars', but this little CRKT Stiff KISS does a pretty good job for it's size!

    (oh, and by the way, don't go into the hard use EDC thread, they'd be apauld that you might be capable of prying with a knife :rolleyes:)

    Actually some are misreading the thread. I'm not recommending people use such knives for prying, more that others refer to them as a pry bar with a point. Unless it's an emergency, prying not recommended.

    Heh, what? That's a CPK, it would most likely stand up to abuse that some of the other knives posted in this thread couldn't. Just saying, broseph.

    Just looking at the long thin-ish design made me think chopping, prying, etc was not it's design strength, but vid suggests otherwise but at 3:19 of vid, he also expressly says "not a sharpened pry bar..." but to be sure, it will outlast some others posted in this thread.

    Well hey, I stand correctifeid, but see what he says at 3;19? I'm not a blade geometry/design expert by any means, but that strikes me as more fighter than intended as hard use utility field knife per se. For that, their HDFK seems the way to go:

    That's more a chisel/scraper, although it would pry a bit.
    Makes a decent shop knife.
    I met a knife-maker who had that exact model of knife in his shop as one of his shop knives. :)

    Interesting! I'd like to see the profile of the bottom one. Almost looks like a bayonet .25 thick?

    No pics at the moment, but my sharpened crowbars are Dawsons. My Carbon V SRK is another. I had a Carbon V Trailmaster long ago I never should have let go that would also have fit the bill.

    I'll get some pics and measurements up later.
