Remove the claw from a claw hammer, replace it with a cat’s paw, and you have something that comes close to the HomeWrecker by FW Tools.  They so named it because they feel it excels at tear-out and demolition — and it’s better then calling it the CLAP (CLAw hammer and cats Paw).

You’ll use the HomeWrecker primarily to drive nails or to dig or pull nails out of wood, but with the hole in its head you can also wrestle foundation bolts into place.

The funny-looking flat area opposite the cat’s paw is for hitting the HomeWrecker with another hammer, and the resulting bump on top acts as a pivot to give you more leverage for pulling nails.

You can purchase the HomeWrecker from the corporate site for $35 with free shipping.

    I personally recommend the Stanley Fubar; while it does not have the hammer strike face or foundation bolt features it does include a timber ripper, nail remover/crow bar, and a fat face for destruction (http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-55-099-FatMax-Functional-Utility/dp/B000FCGS0Y)

    Every Mom and Pop hardware store I go to in the area has these on sale trying to get them off the shelf, It’s hard to miss the funny pinkish handle on these things.

  4. [...] It’s a $35 hammer with a Cat’s Paw at the end. Mostly I just wanted to write that headline. [via Toolmonger] [...]

    I’ll second the FUBAR. It’s also a great small sledgehammer.

    Plus you just can’t beat the name.

    I dislike ALL Stanley Fubars, the design of them makes holding them and using like a hammer a dangerous proposition. The curved claw would end up tearing up your wrist. I can’t believe I’m the only person that notices this.

      You aren’t the only one. We got a bunch at work. Nothing makes Marines happier than a tool for breaking s***…

      The Fubars wound up getting little to no use. Guys choose the fubar for the name and looks then wind up using real tools to break doors.
