There are lash hooks and then there is the Bork Lash Hook. Most lash hooks are traditionally flat in shape, but not the Bork Hook. The Bork Hook is a hand cast bronze lash hook with a curve, this allows your lash rope to follow the curve of your pack animals body. 4 ¼” overall in length and will take up to a 3 1/8” strap (your normal lash cinch connecting leather) This lash hook is a favorite among the best sawbuck packers. Made in the USA.
