Two types of hookaroons

A pickaroon (or picaroon) is a wood-handled, metal-topped log handling tool.[1] It is distinguished from a pike pole by having a shorter handle, no metal point, and an opposite curve to its hook (toward the handle rather than away); and from both a cant hook and peavey by having a fixed hook facing its handle rather than a pivoting one facing away.

A pickaroon with a down-turned point on its hook is known as a sappie or hookaroon;[2] one with an axe blade opposite its hook an axaroon, obviating the need to carry two tools to manage logs.[3]
