For starters, the title above is half-jesting. No, the Glowbar is not connected with the Green Lantern or the DC universe in any way. It’s just that: a glowing crowbar that happens to be, of all colors, green. The really weird part is, rather than market it as a glow in the dark tool for wrenching containers open, the promo copy emphasizes its usefulness as a zombie-fighting weapon. It tends to disorient the undead or something.
To its credit, the Glowbar is made of high-carbon steel, which means it can manage grunt work without losing its green luster. It’s currently available in either 12 or 24 inches. Orders can be placed (it’s $79.99 a pop) via the source link below.
If you’re wondering why it glows, don’t wonder too hard. it’s an aluminum-oxide powder coating that was applied to the raw steel, producing its hypnotic green sheen.
