These handle are designed to fit the eye of the Council Tool Pack Axe which has a unique eye size for that weight of head. It will also fit most boys axe heads. It is thin, ergonomic, and made from 24" of dried American hickory! Each of these handles are hand picked by our team to ensure they are of the highest quality!
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!
Each handle comes with the proper wedge!
The dimension of the eye is: 2 1/8" x 3/4"

I order a B rating and still way better than the ones I found at the local hardware stores. Will def buy again.
After using hardware store replacement handles for years and having to shim, sand, and scrape off the lacquered finish, before applying boiled linseed oil, I finally went to the Whiskey River Trading web site after hearing about their quality replacement handles and I am so glad I did. There is no comparison. The WRT handles are beautiful clear hickory with no knots or defects and grain orientation is optimal. I will never go back to hardware store handles again!
I love the unfinished wood as it saves me an hour at least per handle of stripping before applying boiled linseed oil. The handles arrived sanded well enough that I could apply the BLO right away without additional sanding.
The handles are beefy in the right places and thinned out where needed so the fitting to my axe heads was minimal and yet allowed for perfect fitting.
Thank you Whiskey River Trading for a fantastic product!
Fast shipped. Beautiful wood. Cant wait to hang my plumb on it. Going to give it a burn and boiled linseed. Picked up a couple different wedges to see what I prefer
Have two of these now and every time they are in stock, I try to pick one up. Very versatile as far as what size axe head can comfortably fit and be used. Good length for a smaller boys axe and also great size for a slightly larger head that is easily packable yet can really bring the pain. Probably my favorite handle and very affordable. I’m going to use one as a template and try to make my own.
This was the perfect stick for my vintage Sandvik refurb. The grain was oriented well and the handle was straight and true. Really made that beautiful 75 yr. old Swedish head into a perfect bushcrafter.
The shipping was fast and well packaged. Great shop for us axe junkies. I’m staying.
