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!

The handle looks great but the eye is too narrow. I’m using an axe eye drift from Holland Anvil and it’s quite a bit wider so the handle won’t work for me. I’m sure it’s to specs of other axe drifts, just not mine. If there was an option to have the head of the handle left square, I’d take that.
Quality handles. Bs I received were excellent and have very straight grain.
Sanded fine and take boiled linseed oil like a dream
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.
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.
