This is a very interesting and intriguing handle! At 12 inches it is meant for a special kind of hatchet head! The kind of hatchet who's user lives by the motto "It's not the size of the axe that counts....it's how you swing it!" If you have that an hatchet that size odds are you have been looking for the right handle to fit it on! Well look no further! You can't go wrong with this slender, yet mighty, piece of air dried American hickory!
Dimensions of the eye: ~ 1 1/2" x 1/2"
If you really want to add some character to your new hang pick up a walnut wedge!
You can also grab an extra poplar wedge if you want too!
All axes come with the appropriate wedge!
These are the most beautiful handles I’ve seen!!
Took very little shaping to make it fit an old unbranded hatchet head. Thin, nicely indexed, the kind of handle you just can't stop fiddling with once you pick it up. Was already super smooth, unwaxed, and arrived well packed. Don't hesitate to buy this handle - would make a great shorty to throw in your backpack or glovebox
Haven’t mounted it yet but if it performs as good as it looks it will be amazing!
I was given a small 1 lb Norlund head that was a bit beat up and the 12" mini was a perfect choice. I have not hung it yet, but a rough fit shows it will be perfect once I finish polishing the head and doing a little custom work to the handle.
Excellent wood grain. Fit perfect. Just a little clean up and the head fit just right. Buy with confidence
