We are so excited to be able to offer you, for the first time at Whiskey River Art and Trading Co, The Whiskey River Premium Select Adirondack Double Bit Axe handle! These handles are amazing! I had never gotten to use one on my own axes due to the fact that they are so hard to find for a fair price. As soon as we got our test batch in I hung one of my user double bit heads on one of these handles and I have to say I am a convert! They don't look very intuitive at first glance but you just have to use one of these handles to understand them!
These handles are ergonomic, comfortable, and beautiful 32" pieces of hand selected, dried, American Hickory that will not disappoint!
The dimension of the eye is: ~ 3" x 3/4"
If you really want to add some character to your new hang pick up a walnut wedge!
You can also grab an extra poplar wedge if you want too!
All handles come with the correct wedge!

What an amazing handle! With a little bit of fitting I was ready to go and with one if the coolest looking axes out there! Do not let the price scare you, for what you are getting it is will worth the money. Smooth, straight grain with a very comfortable finish as is. Go ahead a try one, you will not be disappointed!
It’s a great handle but it’s a little pricey
I must start by saying that the handle I received feels phenomenal, not to thick and not too thin. When it came time to hang Smith head on it, the eye area had plenty of meat for me to get it shaped just right. Once hung, the palm swell had an ample amount of material to carve into a very comfy fawns foot.
