I put a 5 pound splitter on and thought it might be too much for it but has been good and strong for the abuse I give it. Plus I torched it a little and oiled it up and it made very pleasing to the eye!
My neighbor gave me a neglected axe head that was she and her family used on their farm in the 60s. This handle was the perfect mate for the Craftsman Jersey. Extremely fast shipping and no complaints about the handle or fitment. If I could give WR 6 stars, I would. 32" curved on the right in first photo, without oil. Hafted with purple heart wedge in the second.
This handle exceeded my expectations. The curve is beautiful, the grain is perfect and the profile feels great in the hand. With a 3.5lb head, it swings effortlessly! I would absolutely buy another!!!
I bought 5 new axe handles, taking advantage of the free shipping for a large purchase from Whiskey River. This is my first shot at hanging an axe on a new handle, I was happy to see a pro on Youtube using a Whiskey River handle in an excellent tutorial on installing a new handle on an axe. I will be giving these axes to my Grandchildren, the quality of the handles will make for fine tools long after I'm gone.,
Nice handle! I hung it on a CT jersey. It went on with minimal fitting. Since it's a B grade, it has tons of character. I'm very pleased with how it turned out
