Pioneering tool: unlashing hook

These hooks are designed for untying stubborn lashings. I haven't used one myself yet, but they look pretty handy.
Made by Ken Stanton, those of you in South Africa can pick one up for R25 from Bramley Scout Shop

Looks like a tent peg and I have lots of those already :)

Well, yes, the business end is the same. I wonder if having a handle helps though? I prefer a marlin spike myslef, but tentpegs and hooks might work, too.
