Sean Brennan submitted his Christmas wish: Stanley’s FUBAR. Sean says: “It’s the ultimate tool for demolition work…”
I’d agree — it’s 64 oz of destructive madness. I researched the FUBAR for PopSci a while back, and there’s some incredible technology packed into that cool little bar; the metallurgy alone’s enough to keep you busy for weeks. It serves the purpose of a sledge hammer, crow bar, and chisel — all in the same tool — yet they still remembered to temper its striking face slightly less than a normal hammer so you can safely hit it without fear of chipping.
A funny story I heard from one of Stanley’s Discovery Team members: When they were first showing the FUBAR to the general public, they were standing out in front of big-box retailers asking random people what they thought. The most common reaction: “Awesome! Where do I get one? What is it?” — in that order.
Street pricing starts around $40, and it’s available everywhere now.
And remember — FUBAR stands for Functional Utility BAR. That other acronym is what happens to the things you attack with it. Keep ’em straight.
