Hoffman uses only Champ brand replacement calks (aka "spikes"). MacNeill Engineering, owner of the Champ brand, is known for exceptional quality and innovation. Their logger calks are no exception, and are produced using only the highest quality, high-carbon steel. To ensure consistently high quality, they keep their production tolerances extremely tight. After production, the calks are heat-treated to a tool steel hardness to provide maximum strength, durability and reliability. A one-piece construction is done by cold heading and trimming which ensures better durability and eliminates any chance of separation of the logging point and plate. Standard plating is zinc blue which provides excellent resistance to corrosion.
