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

 

This handle is the shortest version of our Heritage Series, one of the coolest lines of handles we have had a chance to put out to date.

 

I bought an old, old, old steel pattern from a fellow axe junkie on eBay because I fell in love with the shape and that pattern was used to turn the 30C and for inspiration for this 19C.

 

There is something so awesome about getting a forgotten piece of history back into working hands. This pattern was made when people depended on their tools for survival so when it came to designing them they were not kidding around.

 

This curvy hickory single bit pattern is designed for axes that have a bit of a taller eye (Connies, Jerseys, etc...) but I'm sure it would feel comfortable on any axe you can fit it into. 

 

The axe, as it comes, measures 20" but the palm swell is meant to be cut down after the axe is hung to remove any marring or damage from whatever heavy tool you use to hang the axe with.

 

The edges of the swell also curve slightly upward to give you more grip when swinging.

 

This is one of those handles that looks fine and dandy in pictures but you don't truly understand how awesome it is until you get to work with it.

 

This is our first variation of this handle. Each variation we will work with the community to make the eye of this handle fit better and better. Note that in the future this handle will change in the eye section with each release until it is perfect.

 

This handle will make a wonderful house axe and is designed to have a heavy head hung on it.

 

Top of the Eye (eye is tapered): 2 3/8" X 3/4"

Shoulder:  2 7/16" X 1"

 

Raw Hickory with No coatings.

 

Includes proper wedge.

Made in the U.S.A.

axe handle

Love whisky river axe handles, I've had a few of them now and they perform great, they fit the hand perfectly. They have lots of wood in handle to fit larger eyes, can also be shaved down to fit smaller eyes. 👍👌
