Putting Hay Away the Old-Fashioned Way

Haymow forks fascinate Pennsylvania collector

This single-harpoon haymow fork comparison shows two forks with their barbs extended. The fork on the left is made of flat steel, uses an external lever system to control the barb, and the barb also serves duty as the fork’s point when retracted. The fork on the right utilizes a tubular body enclosing both the control mechanism and the barbs when retracted.
