Reminds me of a bird. It's a wood hook and it's probably a hundred years old. As Ken, the owner, explained, it's like an ice hook, only you use it to grab a log and carry it. Does anybody still use them? I can't even find a listing of one for sale anywhere.
This one's seen a lot of use. To me, it's a piece of history and a work of art. But I'm strange that way.
