The sappie serves to rotate trunks and beams, sometimes also to pull them (cf. cant hook, ring dog).
It is a pointed, slightly curved iron of about 25-30 cm, with an eye at the end, into which a straight or curved handle of 1.10-1.40 m protrudes (weight: 2.5-5 kg).
The iron is placed on the ground, under the trunk. The user pulls on the handle, which is almost vertical. The point then sticks into the wood and the trunk rolls. When a piece is pulled, the user punches his tool into the wood, as he sometimes does with his axe, to have a grip. [MOT]
