Meet our newest addition to our popular Heritage Line of handles - The 28NEC (28" New England Curved)
Do you have a Maine Wedge that has been begging for an authentic handle?
Good ol' New England has been the heart of the lumberman industry and their handles have always had an iconic shape and feel.
We sourced a NOS Tatem brand handle and replicated it to be able to offer a remanufactured version of this recognizable New England shape.
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.
The reverse neck, straight swell, and thin overall feel make this handle very comfortable while swinging.
We are offering this in two species of wood for this first run. White Oak and Hickory.
Hickory will be a constant with this handle moving forward but White Oak is going to be very limited if not exclusively on this first run of handles only.
So if you think you'd want this handle in White Oak be sure to get in on this first run. As I said above - we'd love to keep offering them in White Oak but depending on supply I can't guarantee that we will or will not keep carrying the White Oak version.
The handle, as it comes, measures 28", and the palm swell is finished.
Top of the Eye (eye is tapered): 2 7/16" X 3/4"
Shoulder: 2 1/2" X 7/8"
I ordered 2 whisky River 32c and one 28 nec and a mallet and 4 Purple Heart wedges ! He’s absolutely happy with the handles and everything. We are definitely ordering more soon !
