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


This handle is one of the coolest 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 this handle.


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 31" 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.

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.


Top of the Eye (eye is tapered): 2 1/2" X 15/16"

Shoulder:  2 7/8" X 1"

30” curved heritage axe handle

Beautifully made handle love it. It was a bit big for the eye on my 4.5lb axe head but a bit of work and it fits nicely. I split some wood with it and really like it thank you

Love Your Handles!! Badcrafter

I was thrilled when I got my two new handles. I have since installed the 30C with a 5lb axe head excited to use. Love these handles, this is my third handle from your store and I'm sure more will follow. I was also excited to realize you are so close to where I live. At some point in the future I may drive down and check out your store in person. Thanks again!
