Q's and bigger hooks
Just read in C'ville about large hook issues with rubbing and wrist pain. I'd like some input here, and i'll post there too, about what folks think might help.
The picture is of a large birch hook i made for a friend who was going to do some rug work. My thought was that the job would be made easier by leaving a bit of a surface to engage the forefinger for the pulling motion. Also see the angle of the hook shank to the handle. Now i'm thinking that configuration might not work so well with folks who use a "Pencil" type grip.
Please leave comments about your own issues with large hooks, as i'd really like to use that kind of feedback to design some really big higher end hooks to add onto my vast product line (yeah right).
