Good idea Magic.
AS a point of curiousity, I saw only wooden handled peavys and cant hooks while at Peter's this past saturday.
Also my son heads for the wooden one when he helps me., Interesting I guess it is a matter of personal preference.

That wooden handled Peavey lives at the Cabin and is/was a very poor log handling tool.  Much depends upon how the hook is arched.  I have two non Logrite cant hooks; one will grab a log and the other will not.

The only log handling tools allowed on my work truck are Logrites.  The hooks are properly arched for the intended log size and they always grab.

Since I officially retired that old woodie, it has been used at the tree farm for things such as a dibble for planting trees and as a pry pole when building bridges.  It was never any good as a peavey.   ::)

I am quite sure that the blacksmith properly arched the hooks to grab the intended log size.   The different length Logrites have different hook sizes.

I still have 4-5 hanging in the old farm house waiting to be re-bent my a blacksmith. I can still hear mt Father tell me that. He always kept some on hand so he could swap them out. He loaded many trucks with a peavey. Or I should say peaveys. He had help.

I have accumulated 13 of the wooden ones in the past 28 years. 4 different lengths. Would love to try the " new and improved" but I'm to far into the old ones. Maybe they'll take in 4 or 5 as a trade in.

I know Logrite is an important sponsor and make a fine product, but there's still something cool about an authentic, wooden-handled Peavey.  They were the real deal used by real men for for a very long time...

Yes,the old "Woody's" are a neat tool to look at and have hanging around, guessing that is why I have picked up so many thru the years. I also loan them out to folks getting their logs together for upcoming sawing project. I have several (13). My most prized one is only 2' long. An older gentleman owned it and handed it to me when he left the mill for his retirement. He ran an old Link sash gang at the JR Sizemore mill and worked for three generations of the family. That one stays with me to turn small cants on the lt40. 
Recommendation for length on first Logrite?

I have both styles of cant hooks and a wooden handled peavey that is used occaisonally, and as i posted above my son goes for the wooden one, I grab whichever one is handy, one of the 48 " at each end of the log deck. and an additional 2' Wooden handle one at the control end.
I use the smaller one a lot on small to medium size logs.
I broke the handle on my peavey in the 70s by running over it with my case 1000d track loader.
My dad who loved to turn wood made me an oak handle but could only make a 3' handle.
These tools are like lovin' all are good just some better than others.

The logrites are superior to the wood handled ones.
