    For the folks that use prytools often, does a slight curve help? I forged this one yesterday, 6 1/2" long and 1/4" thick from an old file. Chisel on one end and convex on the other and a leather wrap in the middle. I like the feel of it but now am wondering if a slight curve would make it more effective. What do you think?

    Nice work man!

    Yeah, the curve in a prytool is a must for me. When prying anything near a flat surface your fingers will get in the way before you can get anything done. Sure on a paint can you dont need the curve but honestly for just about any other task a proper curve to create some leverage is a full on requirement.

    I totally agree. Now that we are all in agreement. How MUCH curve?

    I put a gentle curve along the entire length and it seems to be great :)
