What are the most commonly used EOD Tools?
When it comes to most commonly used EOD tools, wire cutters, knives and pry bars are the go-to items for many Techs in the field. These tools come in a variety of materials, such as titanium, ceramic and steel. Titanium is an incredibly strong material that is often used in blades due to its durability and lightweight construction. Ceramic is another popular option due to its being non-conductive to electricity, resistance to corrosion and ability to stay sharp over long periods of time. Steel is also a common choice because of its strength and affordability. All three materials are great options when it comes to cutting through tough materials or brute force prying tasks. EOD Techs use these tools daily to safely complete their assignments, whether they’re searching a building, dismantling an explosive device or conducting demolition operations. With the right tool for the job, no challenge is too big for an EOD Tech or Bomb Tech with the right set of EOD tools.
