This handle is one of the coolest handles we have had a chance to put out to date.
I bought an old, old, old steel pattern from a fellow axe junkie on eBay because I fell in love with the shape and that pattern was used to turn this handle.
There is something so awesome about getting a forgotten piece of history back into working hands. This pattern was made when people depended on their tools for survival so when it came to designing them they were not kidding around.
This curvy hickory single bit pattern is designed for axes that have a bit of a taller eye (Connies, Jerseys, etc...) but I'm sure it would feel comfortable on any axe you can fit it in to.
The axe, as it comes, measures 31" but the palm swell is meant to be cut down after the axe is hung to remove any marring or damage from whatever heavy tool you use to hang the axe with.
The edges of the swell also curve slightly upward to give you more grip when swinging.
This is one of those handles that looks fine and dandy in pictures but you don't truly understand how awesome it is until you get to work with it.
See the pictures below for eye dimensions.
