Berry Hook (Long Handle)
The perfect tool for removing blackberry canes.
Product DescriptionThis tool has been around since the Middle Ages when it was used for tree pruning and as a weapon for peasants called to war by their local liege lord. From the 1600's on a version was used for roguing out overgrown berry canes. If you're removing blackberry canes an inch or so in diameter and upwards of 20 feet long, you NEED this tool. The chisel tip is used to cut half way through the base of a freestanding cane. The hook is used to complete the cut and drop the cane AWAY from you instead of ON to you. For canes that are tangled in shrubs or trees, use the chisel to cut through the base of the cane then use the hook to drag the cane from the brush. The long, stout pole keeps you from having a close, personal relationship with thorny stems. This item ships out as an oversize.
