Still looking for the perfect log pick

Recommended Posts

Just got a fiskars sappie log pick and I much prefer it over the Oregon one I already have. Sticks better and doesn’t have a stupid rubber handle that pulls off!

Only downside is that the handle end doesn’t hook neatly onto the processor guarding in between uses like the Oregon.

Been using the same for years now but it's branded as stubai ? Great picks ! Also brought an ochsenkopf different to the one above with a thicker glass fibre type handle and pointy heavy head and it was a waste of time.

I am just in the market for such a tool and looking at the Stubai 900mm aluminium variety.

Stuabi used to be big in the game with ice axes and associated items.

What are your thoughts on the stubai 3 years on?

A friend brought round a copy of the smaller pickaroon, which looked identical but was completely different in weight and balance and crucially kept dropping logs.  The Stihl ones are hand forged and the steel seems special as I have never sharpened mine in three years.  I only use the big one when the Teleporter is not at hand, but I use the smaller one all the time and thoroughly recommend it.
