Why would a vegetarian buy meathooks, you might ask? I'm glad you asked! We just got 900 sq ft of hardwood flooring - solid hickory - delivered, for a nice little DIY floor-redoing project, and moving the EXTREMELY HEAVY (60-70 pounds) bundles of wood is murder on your hands. Lots of pinched skin, smashed fingers, you name it. The bundles are wrapped with this tough plastic/fiberglass tape stuff to hold them together. And it’s super easy to slide the hook under the tape and then just lift. You have to kind of walk carefully so if the tape breaks, the wood won't land on your feet (so far, no broken tape). It's a game changer. Don't know what I'm going to do with the hooks when we are done, but ... I'll figure something out.
These are sturdy enough so far. They are not as sharp as all the warnings indicate, but they'll work and I can sharpen them up later. I use them for quartering wild hogs and have had no issue holding the hind quarters with these.
These are basically junk. Not stainless as advertised. Poorly welded. I bought them to pick up quarters of beef, but I am afraid to even use them, they are so poorly welded. Also the handles have some sort of chemical residue inside.. Do not buy if you plan on lifting more than a 50 lb piece of meat.
