Duckbill hooks are one-piece drop forged steel construction, ground to a fine point. The ductile iron cast clasp provides higher strength. Clasp is open at top and drawn tight by a bolt, eliminating the need for a bolt hole through the handle. Heavy steel swivel allows free movement, permitting timber passage through narrow areas. Finished product is designed to handle logs from 3 to 16 inches in diameter. Handles are turned to a 2-1/2 inch diameter in 4 foot and 4-1/2 foot lengths of white mountain hickory kiln dried to an 18% moisture content. Replacement parts are available.
