Whiskey River Premium Heritage 30C - 30" Handle

  • Sale
  • Regular price $36.00


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.

 

This is our third variation of this handle. Each variation we have worked with the community to make the eye of this handle fit better. Please see the new dimensions of the eye below. 

 

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

Shoulder:  2 7/8" X 1"

Amazing axe handle!!

This is by far the best axe handle I have used. I got the b grade handle but even so it had excellent grain orientation and very minimal runout. The handle is excellently shaped and requires no additional shaping or finish work to use. I love the large **** end and it’s very comfortable in the hands. I was always disappointed with store bought handles after using some vintage axes that had their original Handles and the 30c is just as good if not better than those.
