|Description & Commentary:|
Gois makes hardware for commercial fishing vessels. This massive 23cm (9 in) gated hook is made from solid 3/4 in stainless steel and weighs almost 1.2kg (2.6 lbs). A knurled tube forms the sliding gate, held closed by a heavy spring. The gate is not load bearing, nor keyed in any way - it may spin freely, which probably reduces wear on the weakest part of the hook. A welded crossbar encourages proper orientation, although the welds show some minor flaws.
The only markings are a clear sticker on the gate with GOIS printed in blue lettering.
