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.

Hookaroons are great tools for reaching into or across machines to clear a jam or move cants and logs. These tools extend your reach or keep your hands out of harms way. They can also be used for moving slabs or firewood quickly.
If you haven't heard the buzz yet, we would like to introduce you to our sister company, Bluecreeper. LogRite Tools purchased the company in 2011 after hearing that the owner was going to retire. Having used the penetrating, lubricating and cleansing products themselves, and like everyone else that has ever tried them, Kevin and Tammy knew that the products must live on. The former company was called "Rust Reaper" but soon after LogRite acquired the company, they renamed it in homage to the blue color the LogRite tools are now famous for.
We invite all of our current customers and website visitors to visit the Bluecreeper website and try the products. We know that you will be as impressed as LogRite Tools is. After all, that impression made them buy the company.
