    We should include pickaroons, too. Maybe sweet hooks as well (our local slang for log carriers).

    Pickaroon, I like it as well but will still go on using the original, sappie. Its handled from a split out piece of oak 'cause it's all I had on hand at the time, heavy but still holding up, showing no signs of being overly taxed.[​IMG]

    It stops the stem rolling off the end on to the ground before it gets lifted into place and dogged there, because then I'd have to use it to get it back up.

    What a fantastic hand-forged cant-hook!:)

    That's how most of them were,back before the Industrial Age...Easier to pack,and it being the sort of a tool that it is,surely a guy could find and whittle something when he gets there...

    Black Walnut. The tree was living and dropped about 2-3 weeks ago.

    All the cant dog dog and Bangor Peavey talk :thumbsup:

    I just the other day made a good rescue haul and I can now add this Warren to my collection here...

    I also brough home this interesting example of a cant dog, I just started to soak it a bit to loosen the pick from the socket. Rock solid rust fusion.
    From what I could make out, the hook now has a collar to make up for the stress crack at one flange of the bolt mount at the socket.

    My Bangor/Rafting style, far left, came to me with a broken haft I attempted to make a knob end. I imagined it once as long as the 5' example JB has. Mine is not stamped.

    I will need to get some pics to repost of the saw mill cant hook(s).
    :cool:

    It’s not a cant hook per say.

    My pickaroons/ or “pickles” fit through the ring if need be to move logs.

    I could be wrong but I think your hook on a ring is only missing its haft for leverage. I think that you may have one if the earlier design cant dogs...I think it had a different name but still the same use.

    You know, even if it wasn’t designed for it, I figure it might function as one?

    To reuse & repurpose is always better than to recycle. :thumbsup:

    This might be all I have as of today...

    No pics till tomorrow but so far I have an Oshkosh peavey that has been welded on a maple branch handle, a no-name peavey head as of yet unhung, a P pickaroon (it counts, right?), and a shield M log carrier. Does anyone know of a company that had that logo? Also, I'm trying to get a cant hook that has BELL SYSTEMS branded on the handle (and another one I forgot).:cool: Wish me luck!
    edit: Group pic tomorrow, individual pics tonight except for one I can't find photos of. Targets first.

    All these poor, unemployed cant hooks, lookin all shiny and bored...

    Literally my second favorite tool at work. First choice goes to my axe, of course.

    That's a peavey.:p Seriously though, a peavey/cant hook is nice for moving logs in the woods and a pickaroon is king of the wood pile. Too bad long peavey handles are so expensive. After using a 5-5.5 foot total length peavey, there's no going over to short handles.
