Council Tool 1.5# Hookeroon; 36″ curved wooden handle
1.5 lb. Hookeroon head with 36″ curved hickory handle. Pick shape is designed to stick and pull boards and lumber in saw mills and woodworking applications.
Forged tool steel head. Made in USA. Tapered pick end is hand sharpened by experienced hands.
Heat treated working end produces fine grain structure and Rc 45-55 (Rockwell Hardness Values) for safety, edge holding and toughness.
Body coated with red enamel to deter rust.
36″ American hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.
Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a serrated aluminum wedge. The serrated shape improves bite and the aluminum choice of material is strong, lightweight, and does not change size with moisture content.
The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2″ of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly.
The assembled tool is drilled and a steel bolt inserted to lock head, handle and wedge together.
Received it yesterday (Thursday) and it appears in perfect condition. Very nice product – has the appearance of an antique. I mean, it looks like something that might have been made a hundred years ago. Old world style. Thank you for your excellent service.
