This 16" piece of American Hickory is a comfortable curved handle meant to fit a smaller hatchet head like one you would use in the Boy Scouts. They are very ergonomically and would make the perfect handle for a pack-able bushcraft axe! Each handle is hand picked by our excellent team to ensure they are only of the highest quality!
The dimension of the eye is: 1 3/4" x 5/8".
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!
Every axe handle comes with the proper wedge!
this is a really well made handle but, i bought this thinking it would be small enough so its kinda my fault but im probably just going to re shape it so it fits. so no harm no foul.
This handle replaced one on my mother in law’s 40+ year old Girl Scout hatchet. The slightly longer length really balances and swings well. I appreciate the trim lines and thin cross section. Went with a walnut wedge for contrast.
I purchased the 16" Premium Scout Hatchet Handle Select - A and expected a vertical grain handle with an even swell on both sides. But, the swell only appears on one side of the handle and the grain is horizontal. I'm just not sure if I misunderstood what I had purchased. I have the Boy's axe and now the house axe both the sport utility and their handles are better than the premium handle.
Honestly just a great handle, will see how it holds up but it looks and feels great and didnt take much to get it hung. nice grain straight up the handle.
