Definitely not AA quality
March 6, 2021
As someone who works in the woods and use my axe every day it is important to me to have a quality handle on my axe. I ordered 2 "AA quality" 36" axe handles from Westech Rigging but there is only one that I might actually use because one has a bad 2" split on the knob of the handle (see picture) that goes all the way through to the other side. This was not shipping damage because it has been lacquered over. Speaking of the finish, the handle is very rough too and will need to be sanded.

Merchant Response:Sorry you're not happy with the handles Darin. We sell a ton of them and some customers are quite happy, others are not. We have yet to find a handle manufacturer that products 5-star handles across the board, at least at a reasonable price. Thus we do our best to work with the product available to us . We are happy to take them back and issue a refund if you so choose.
  • Wood is good except for the one that was split.
  • *Split in one of the handles.
  • *Not very symmetrical on the end that goes into the axe head.
  • *Rough finish,

Like others have said, the finish was not great, but literally two minutes with some finishing sandpaper and and it is awesome. The wedge it came with it was pretty bad, I had to cut it in half and then sand it back into a wedge but it got the job done.
  • Good sturdy handle.
  • Finish, and an unusable (as it arrived) wood wedge.

Good Quality Wood

This handle was chosen because the eye of both axe heads I have are 3 and all locally available handles were too small. The quality of the wood and grain is good, hard and straight. However the wedge for both handles were split and the varnish finish is not smooth and will have to be sanded down prior to use. Not an issue for me as I sand the entire handle prior to hanging the head, but for someone who does not want to spend the time sanding expect the blisters. Overall, 3 star rating, for the split wedges and the finish.
  • Good grain.
  • Split wedges and rough varnish finish.

Could not find this handle at any Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowes, TSC or other stores in area. Found it here and as you can see by the photos it was a perfect fit. Need to force on for perfect fit and use of wedges to keep it on. Beautiful working axe. If you ask what is beautiful about an axe you never used one.
  • Only place could find handle to fit.
  • None
