"The first thing I did was remove the varnish on the handle and then moisturized it with boiled linseed oil. I also sharped the point better.
The tool works well, although it would be nice to have a choice of handle length. This one sometimes is too long.
As with any tool there is a learning curve to it, but so far it has made working the wood lot easier."

"The product looks great but the steel in the pick is not of high quality. Point came damaged through shipping and when heating it up to put a new point, you could tell it was cheep steel. Not sure how long it will last."

"I've used this tool for years and as time goes on I feel less and less like bending over and picking up logs. The Hookaroon enables me to work all day and still sleep at night."

"Product delivers as it is intended. The only recommendation would be to sharpen the hook point more. We use this for processing green fire wood cords and it sticks better into the green wood now that we sharpened it to a fine point."

quality tool

"I was at first put-off by the higher price but am not any more. This is a quality tool made in USA. I just wish they didn't put their inventory stickers on the center of the handle. When I went to remove them, of course they come off in little tiny bits. I was able to remove them all and with using "goo-gone" was able to remove the sticky adhesive. Good tool and if it is quality I don't mind paying for it."

"I purchased this item for helping me drag logs out of the woods and it works as it should and prevents you from having to lift the logs onto your shoulder and carry them. Also keeps you from having to bend over."

"This is an excellent tool for moving small to medium pieces of timber. It is light weight and easy to use and is especially suited for moving fire wood.It could made to be more effective by sharpening the point with a file.The flat side is not very useful as a striking tool due to the low weight of the head."

"Well built, had to touch up the tip a little bit. ( It works best sharp ) Saves a lot of time and energy bending over to pick up wood, eg. fire wood, boards, etc. Well worth the money."
