A Peavy is a traditional logging tool handle with a metal spike protruding from the end. The spike is rammed into a log, then a hook (at the end of an arm attached to a pivot a short distance up the handle) grabs the log at a second location. Once engaged, the handle gives the operator leverage to roll or slide or float the log to a new position. Dixie Industries Peavys feature handles turned from select White Mountain Hickory air dried to 18% moisture content, then precision fitted with the finest tool available to the industry. Duckbill Hooks are drop forged high carbon steel with the bill ground to a fine point. Drawn carbon steel socket, and a pick forged from high carbon steel before being solidly driven into the handle. The socket is held securely in place with a special retaining tab forged into the pick.
For logs sizes of 6 to 16in.
