This is called a slate bar, this one is a 60" model from Rockforge available from home depot. It weighs about 30 pounds, feels very heavy, is pointed on one end and flat on the other. It makes short work of several-inch-thick ice mounds. For 1.5" in thinner ice I would suggest a normal Snow & Ice Scraper with 8" flat edge, similar to a garden ho, but straight. I had originally tried hammering straight down into the ice with the goal of using it like a lever to split the ice apart, but it just ended up making little volcano shapes. This sliding method proved very effective though if the ice was thick and hard enough to get under it.
