What is the difference between a Peavey and a Cant Hook?
Traditionally cant hooks were used around sawmills for turning cants. While peaveys were designed for and used
for river drives.
Both tools consist of a handle with a swing hook. The difference
between the two is what is on the end of the handle and the way the
tools grip a log.
A cant hook has a small toe hook on the end which provides a second
biting edge. A peavey has a point on the end which
is used to separate logs.
Today these tools are used interchangeably and are capable of doing the same jobs. So it comes down to personal
preference when choosing between the two tools. We have noticed regional preferences.
