A pry bar is more versatile than its design would suggest. They can be a great all round demolition tool, if used safely and correctly. Originally designed simply to pry boards and nails up or out of position, they're now stronger, more sophisticated and are expected to work a little harder than they used to.
They're great woodworking tools to have around when you're dropping a shed or pulling an old deck out, and if you're a professional - it's good advice to have several pry bars in various sizes. Nothing takes down a building full of dry wall quite like a good quality wrecking bar and a construction worker with a purpose.
