A peavey or peavey hook is a logging tool consisting of a handle, generally from 30 to 50 inches (0.76 to 1.27 metres) long, 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. The Peavey Manufacturing Co. is still located in Eddington, Maine and manufactures several variations.

  • A peavey or peavey hook is a logging tool consisting of a handle, generally from 30 to 50 inches (0.76 to 1.27 metres) long, 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. The peavey was named for blacksmith Joseph Peavey of Upper Stillwater, Maine, who invented the tool as a refinement to the cant hook (also known as a "cant dog") in the 1850s. Many lumberjacks use the terms interchangeably, though a peavey has a spike in the end of the handle, and a cant dog has a blunt end or possibly small teeth for friction. The Peavey Manufacturing Co. is still located in Eddington, Maine and manufactures several variations. (en)
