No. Believe you are referring to what is called a pike pole. These are not pike poles. Think footwear.

Not quite.  A pike pole is a straight pole with a steel spike on the end and a 3 or 4 inch fixed spur about six inches back from the end point, used for moving floating logs, log rafts, etc.  Pike poles I used were aluminum and from 8 to 16 (18?) feet long.  A pike pole has little strength other than straight pushing or pulling. Side or prying pressure would bend or break it easily.

 Jim, a peavey or cant hook is used to roll logs over.  It has a short, thick and strong handle, maybe 4 feet long, with a strong steel point and a hinged steel arm with a hook on the end.  The hook arm is attached a foot or more up from the spike end.  Peavey and cant hook are variations of the same tool, very heavy compared to lightweight pike poles.  Jab the spike end in the side of a log, let the hook arm catch the log part way around, and rotate the log by leverage of its radius.   ( :huh: How's that for an erudite word combo?  :congrats:)

The items in this thread look extremely specialized to me.

Wow.  Good thing you put up a picture or I'd have never figured out how they use those things!

Am baking huckleberry pies using pure rendered black bear lard, plus some other such kitchen work, or I'd take time to find pictures of a pike pole and a peavey to post.  There is a peavey on the wall in a cafĂ© I frequent so will try to remember to take a picture of it.
