Product Description

  • A genuine hickory handle with a clear lacquer finish
  • Includes needed wedge(s) for installation
  • Eye Size: 2-1/4 x 5/8*

* Eye dimensions are approximate and some variation occurs due to the handmade nature of this handle. Some sanding or cutting may be required to get a proper fit. Handles are ordered in batches, and from one batch to the next, the color tone can change significantly. All handles, regardless of color, are ordered as Grade AA, highest quality. However, these handles are not hand-picked and perfect grain orientation is not guaranteed. If you require a hand-picked handle with perfect grain orientation, please call us to place a special order. Such handles come at a higher price from the manufacturer and require special processing.

I am looking for a double blade axe handle with eye dimensions of 2.75" x 5/8" in a length anywhere between 28" and 36".
1 Answer
Unfortunately we do not have that handle in our inventory. We were able to find one that specs out @ 3" x 5/8", and you could probably make it fit. But we have to order 12pcs at a time. If you're interested in that, just let us know.

Ax handle

I was quite pleased with the quality of the 28 inch ax handle I received. The grain was good and the handle was straight.
Pros
  • Good grain

Measurements are smaller than advertised

I ordered two of these and instead of being 2 1/4" x 5/8" as advertised, both were 2 1/16" x 5/8". I can't use either of them.

Merchant Response:Sorry to see the handle did not meet the spec as advertised by the manufacturer. They are produced and finished by hand, so some variation is to be expected, but we understand that you can't use these as is, and we're happy to take them back and issue a refund if you choose.
Pros
  • Good wood.
Cons
  • *Measurements are smaller than advertised.
  • *Finish is very rough and needs to be sanded down before use.

The axe handle fits perfectly and is made of dense hardwood. One of the things about West Tech Rigging I liked was their website describing their products. It gave each measurements and photos so you do not have to guess if what your are ordering fits.

When the big box stores don't know their axe handle from a hole in the ground...I contacted the experts at Westech Rigging and got a hickory handle for a double bit! The handle is straight, grain is great (strongest when grain is correct) and fits with little rasping! I could not be more pleased!

I received the axe handles very quickly, and though I haven't used them yet, they look good.
