Nice looking ripper. Love the handle design. I may have to retire my Pexto (NOT!) - It broke half way up the blade awhile back and I keep welding it back together for a few more years of service each time. Love my ripper and its molded hand grip. I have a newer stortz, but its blade is a little 'springy' compared to my old Pexto.
I'll have to stop in sometime and check it out.

ever use your slate ripper as an anvil on box gutters to close your seams? i did a mansard with really high backs that were almost 10" vertically and i couldnt get them backed out tight so i used my slate ripper turned around slid it behind and used it as an anvil worked great

We try to carry a dead-blow mallet with us on the roof, to pervent damage to the ripper! Some time it easier to brake the pcs with the 16 in it, or remove pcs above that slate, so that you can pull the nails rather then rip them out.

AJC used to sell a lousy ripper - short, thick and curved. It broke more slates than it repaired and it was so short it was not very useful. *However*, they redesigned the tool in the summer of 2009, modeling it after a traditional ripper such as a Pexto. Now they have a nice ripper and the price is right too.

Take a look at it here: http://josephjenkins.com/store/product.php?productid=16254&cat=254&page=1
