How to use the words Wrecking Bar and Crowbar?




A crowbar is a straight bar with one end only slightly bent and sharpened into a beak. This beak gave the tool its name, originally just a “crow.”


The tool with the much more pronounced hook on the end—designed for prying loose boards and drawing nails—is properly called a “wrecking bar.”
