I highly recommend padded work gloves when using this tool.
William Spillman
The Dead On is useful for moderate grade demo, construction and most other work, where the Fubar is designed for pure annihilation.

Yes, it does look like a prop from a bad science fiction movie.

I had high hopes for the Annihilator. I really needed the spear point but the demo hammer and nail puller/hatchet were great selling points. The job I got it for was a bathroom demo so I would be using the spear, hammer, AND I got to try out the hatchet. Everything was great for the first 10 minutes. Drywall was melting in front of the onslaught the Annihilator put forth. The problem was, when I went to pull the nails from the studs, low and behold, I had broken off one of the nail puller teeth. After my initial "aww that sucks" moment since I just broke my new tool, I noticed that I had also sent a crack down the main shaft of the bar.

The steel, is very very cheap quality. You know how when good steel snaps, it leaves that nice clean "sheer"? Not this steel. It ended up looking like textured rock, and after smacking it a few more times (just to abuse it a little more before returning it) the crack in the shaft got deeper and small flecks of steel/epoxy finish were coming off. Great idea, awesome design, but very sadly, it is a toy and will fail under anything more than household use. It is most certainly not a professional tool for a jobsite.

I bought this at the insistence of my toddler son when we were at a retail
tool store... and _damn_, this this rocks. My contractor was doing some
post-hole beetle repair, and not making a lot of progress with his flat-steel
Stanley prybar. With a few pokes of this sick puppy, we knew that one of the
rim joists needed replacement, not just a bit of bugspray. This is a SERIOUS
instrument of demolition.

The middle part of the tool is a nice grippy rubber molding; I'm not sure
how thick steel in the middle really is. But "thick enough" is thick enough.
It's nice that they took the normal "hangar and small nail puller" hole in the
long end and turned it into a marginally useful wrench as well. There's
a lot of nice touches on this tool like that.

I would NOT recommend this tool for use to move things you care about; there
is no "shallow wedge" on this pry bar, and no way will you ever be able to reuse
that antique crown moulding if you pull it off with this bar (use the flat
Stanley for that sort of work). This bar is all about destruction,
pure and simple. Much more about destruction than the Stanley Fubar; this
thing has a lot more _ways_ to destroy things.

I have yet to use the bottle opener; I didn't even know it had one till I
read a review on another site.

Yes, it does look like a prop from a bad science fiction movie. Get over it.
Or even better, get into it.

A few years ago, I purchased the "original" Exhumer (nail puller and bottle open) from Dead On and liked the look but not the performance. The metal used in the manufacture kept bending and pitting as I tried to pull nails of various sizes until it was almost unusable on any nails smaller the d8.

I was hesitant about purchasing another Dead On tool because of that but gave in to getting this wrecking hammer, the Annihilator, because I'm a sucker for really different looking tools. I fully expected that this would be joining the Exhumer in the back of the tool chest after a few weeks.

Wow, was I wrong. I have been using this tool almost constantly since I got it (house demo and rebuild) and none of my other hammer-pull bar combos can perform like this. It is a heavy tool, heavier than the Estwings I normally use. The handle grip is not quite as comfortable as the Estwing but the longer spread of the claw head gives the Annihilator a great mechanical advantage when pulling nails.

When held in the center of the grip, the Annihilator is nicely balanced to give you a decent hit without too much strain. When held at the very end, this tool gives a powerful strike but will eventual cause strain on your wrist until you get used to it. (weekend carpenters will not get used to using it that way)

The spike at the handle end can be a blessing and a curse. If carefully used, it is extremely handy for spliting boards apart or letting someone know that the last creme-filled dounut is yours. When incorrectly used, you can cause puncture wounds up and down you legs and it goes through standard leather boots. A naturally clumsy person should never be allowed to use this tool for the safety of themselves and the others around them.

Also, never sell short the great looks you get during a demo when you are using a functional tool that looks like it came from the set of Underworld or the Blade movies.

I bought this hammer to do demo. It is afterall called a wrecking bar. After about a week the forks snapped off while pulling a nail. Then the next week i snapped the hammer clean in two while demoing out a wall. Absolute garbage. It is made out of cheap useless metal i suspect isnt entirely steel. DO NOT BUY.

This is the most potent wrecking bar I have ever owned. When destroying something with your standard Stanley crowbar, a lot of work must be put into wriggling the beak out of whatever you are trying to destroy... This isn't a problem with the Annihilator, as each blow usually either bites off a big chunk of the object or mangles it entirely in one swing.

The beak is great for splintering old wood/fiberboard and for prying stubborn planks apart, the axe cuts through drywall and plaster with a solid hit, the spike will punch holes where you need it, the hammer drives nails, the wrench-like head will bite onto and twist/rip wood apart... this thing is fantastic. I have made very short--and fun--work of many poor, hapless pieces of furniture and a friend's currently-being-remodeled home.

Just be careful how you swing it, and wear thick boots... this thing is packed full of ways to accidentally hurt yourself!
