The American Fish Hook & Needle Co. was founded by a dentist, Dr Chauncey O. Crosby, inventor of the automated hook making machine. By 1867, 180,000,000 hooks a year were being made and the days of handmade hooks were over.
Every step from straightening, cutting and shaping the barbs & points are done entirely by hand utilizing tools and traditional methods much the way they would have been done in 1800. Complete with an authentic japanned blued finish that will change color as it wears with time. Heirloom quality, the handcrafted classic hook clip is perfect for managing pages and photos for pocket sized memo/journal books. Additional uses include hat decor and as a money/card clip. Ideal for 3½ x 5½ pocket memo books.
Hand-Crafted in the USA. Field Notes journal sold separately.
