  • A genuine hickory handle with a clear lacquer finish
  • Includes needed wedge(s) for installation
  • Eye Size: 13/16 x 2-7/16 (3 - 5 lbs)*

* 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.

Good for its intended use

I ordered this handle as a replacement for one I was restoring for a friend. When it arrived, it was the perfect length, the eye was the right size and shape. The grain direction was off from what it should be for an impact tool, but the axe was going to be a wall hanging family heirloom so no big deal.
  • Right size
  • Right shape
  • Grain direction was a little off, but since it was going on a wall hanging axe, it wasn't an issue.

It was a good piece of wood at the time I was looking. 2 other company’s never have stock and I found these guys. Well I won’t look to the others anymore. They sell everything a faller needs and more. Give em a try, was fast getting here too, at a time of year when shipping company’s make excuses for late arrivals.
  • Strong and good quality
  • None
