HAMMER + PRYBAR
The True Temper 30-inch Claw Bar looks like a cross between a framing hammer and a crowbar. Thanks to this design, it should be able to handle all essential aspects of demolition: prying, pulling, and smashing. It has a hammerhead, too, but it's unlikely you'll be driving any finish nails with this thing — though you could certainly use it to tap a studwall into place. The 5-pound tool is made of ¾-inch bar stock and is tempered for added strength.
