#1 Slate Ripper preferred by slaters
One piece forging (NO WELD) provides years of use and is superior to a welded construction ripper
A spring tempered, thin blade makes sliding under slate for repairs easy without breaking adjoining slates
The re-enforced handle will withstand a beating over its lifetime
The tool is equally useful on tile shingles and cedar shake
