A New Generation of Lightweight Titanium Crowbars
Stiletto is set to revolutionize the market with their upcoming line of high-performance titanium crowbars. Combining cutting-edge technology, innovative designs, and top-quality materials, the Stiletto Titanium Flat Bars are poised to become the finest crowbars available. However, premium quality comes at a price.
Unveiling Excellence at the Las Vegas International Builders Show
During our visit to the Stiletto booth at the 2009 Las Vegas International Builders Show, we were thrilled to explore their impressive range of titanium hammers and crowbars. We eagerly anticipated getting a glimpse of their upcoming offerings that hadn’t hit the market yet. Stiletto’s success lies in the exceptional innovation and uniqueness of their tools. While anyone can produce a hammer, crafting one from titanium demands special design and engineering expertise. Titanium surpasses steel in energy transmission, shock absorption, and weight. Weighing 45% less than steel, titanium maintains impressive strength. This lightweight strength makes titanium an attractive option for those who rely on flat bars and pry bars in their daily tasks.
Unparalleled Design and Features
The new pry bars we reviewed come in various sizes, ranging from approximately 16 inches to about 5 inches. Designed as flat pry bars, they boast distinctive features. One standout feature is the built-in stapler that comes with the handles of the larger pry bars. This innovative addition makes staple removal painless and effortless, addressing a common frustration. Additionally, all pry bars are equipped with Stiletto’s patented 180-degree side nail pullers, as seen in their renowned TiBone series of hammers. Some bars even include corkscrews as standard!
