Curved Single Bit Axe Handle - 36" - Whiskey River Premium Select

  • Sale
  • Regular price $34.00


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

 

This is a robust and wonderfully curved single bit axe handle. It's a bit thicker to withstand the extra force you can create with this length of a handle and the handle is thoughtfully curved to help make it more ergonomically and comfortable in hand! Each of these handles are hand picked by our team to ensure they are of the highest quality! They are made from 36" of air dried American Hickory!

The dimension of the eye is: ~ 2 1/2" 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!

 

 

Note: Shoulder is 2 1/2" x 1".

Every axe handle comes with the proper wedge!

Awesome quality for a classic shape

I purchased a 36" handle for my old Jersey Woodslasher and the fit is spot on. The grain had good patterning and makes me confident. If I had a problem I wouldn't hesitate to ask them for help. Great website, crew and customer service.

Select A grade handle

Received item quickly, although a little disappointed in the quality. I paid the extra for the hand selected “A” grade handle. Handle is warped to the side mid way and shoulder is u even from side to side. Even the butt end is crooked. Have heard a lot of good things about these guys and their handles, was referred by a friend. Maybe I just got the one that slipped through the cracks.

Great handle

Purchased this for a kelly works Connie pattern. Good grain orientation, almost no run out. Straight kerf. Turned out nicely!

Handle split after 5 hours

I’ve been slowly taking apart a dead oak that was cut into 16” rounds. Needed to replace the original handle on my dad’s axe that had survived for almost 30 years. Went with this 36” curved handle that seemed a like-for-like replacement. I received it and it appeared ok, although the grain wasn’t as tight nor as straight as I would have selected myself. After spending a few hours draw-knifing it to fit and then installing it using wood wedges and one metal wedge, I went to split logs. About 5 hours in (carefully sharpening blade every round) I heard a large crack and noticed a 16” split from the axe head down the center of the shaft. It was only longitudinal for the first 6 inches, and then turn out to the side. Based on the run-out, the grain wasn’t as straight as I’d hoped a “premium” handle would be. Next handle will probably be from the local hardware store. Then I can at least inspect the grain and handle first.
