Incredible Handle

Remember when you used to be able to go to the hardware store and pick through a bunch of handles to “maybe” find one that had great grain alignment and zero to little runout? That’s what it’s like buying a handle from these guys. Except you don’t have to pick through 20 to find one good one. Easy to fit, not much sanding or rasping involved. Can’t recommend enough.

Great handle!

In my opinion, the 28” cruiser handle the Whiskey River provides is perfect for my 2.5 pound double bit cruiser head. It being one of the more versatile handles, still keeping it condensed and useable was my goal and it achieved it. As always very please with any thing WR has to offer.


The handle was hard to find but Whiskey River had it in stock, in the mail and at my door in short time. The handle itself was a beauty piece of wood, hung it on an antique double bit Camp axe.....very excited!!!

These are the best grade B's or #2's available in my opinion. Can't be beat!!!
