About this objectThis Fern Hook was called the "Gippsland Type" in the catalogue of the time, and priced at 5/9.
The description in the catalogue states, "A general slashing and cutting tool, especially for Ferns, Coarse Grass, Tussocks, Etc.'' It appears that in the first
place it was produced for the cutting of Thatching material and especially wild fern. In recent years have seen it used for the cutting of rice crops.
From the original Viv Kable catalogue exhibit register.
