Spiraled/Twisted Crochet Hooks

But my article was about spiraled or twisted crochet hooks. Here is a picture of those in my collection:
I mentioned one other kind of spiraled hook, one that is made of naturally twisted wood. I don't have any like that in my collection, so I started a search for one. I did not have any luck. I found a vendor on Etsy who carves hooks, some which look almost like they are naturally twisted in the photographs. I asked her if they were and she told me that wood like that usually has been damaged by insects or rot. Anyway, I still want one. We had a pawpaw tree fall in our yard, with many years' growth of vines. Below is a photo of some of the twisted branches/vines I salvaged. Maybe someday I will attempt to make one (or more) of my own.
