Ice Pick



An Ice Pick is used to shatter pieces of ice off from a larger piece of ice, or separate ice cubes that have frozen together.

The are a few different designs.

The standard one looks like a large awl -- a single metal pointed thin rod coming out from a handle, that you hold in your clenched fist and stab the ice with. It's a classic feature in horror movies.

Another kind looks like a large fork-like gardening implement, with 5 to 6 sturdy tines coming out of it

On both designs, the handles are quite sturdy, and somewhat weighted, to help you build up momentum.
