What is the difference between Grade A handles and Grade B handles? 


This is a wonderfully slim and ergonomic 28" dried hickory boys axe handle. In my opinion the 28" boys axe is one of my favorite length and weight for an axe set up. Each of these handles are hand picked by our team to ensure they are of the highest quality! 

Dimension of the eye: 2 1/4" x 3/4".

Proudly Made in the USA!

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!


Every axe comes with the proper wedge!

Great product and amazing service

This handle was great right out of the box. Shaped and very thin, I was able to focus on the hang and fawn’s foot. I chose A grade, and the grain runs straight and true. I wound up with two handles (sending one back), so first pic is a fresh handle next to my hang. Boys axe is a Plumb Super Scout.

Brandon is a gentleman and he was genuinely friendly and helpful. Grateful to him and his family, thanks for helping us with the hobby!

Boys axe handle, 28” Select

Great service, liked the handle on arrival. I am mounting a 3.5 # Swedish axe head on it. I truly wanted a straight handle but the curve of this handle is not too dramatic. Which is to my liking. I am doing this for fun, and wanted a smaller handle to carry with me when I’m falling. Being a smaller man, I may want a shorter handle yet, and possibly a 2.5# head. I will figure all this out after my shoulder surgery heals, and I build the axe 🪓 and see if another axe might be a more “Perfect Fit”! At 75, I don’t need a passel of axes just because I can? I thought a wedge wasn’t shipped with my handle so I texted Brandon and he was already preparing to ship one out, when I decided to ask my wife if she put it somewhere “out of the way”. Sure enough she knew right where it was. I immediately let Brandon know! This whole experience has shown superb customer service and leadership at Whiskey River! I will buy from them again for sure. Great job you guys!

First Handle from Whiskey River

This was just what I needed for replacing the handle for my boys axe. I bought three different handles and this is the first one I used. I bought grade B and it was far superior to the original handle. I had a fair amount of shaping to do but did it mostly with a power detail sander. I’m very pleased with my selection.
