Beaver-Tooth Handle Co. is my go-to for all my wooden handled tool repairs. Their handles have a fit and finish that not only makes the repair super easy, but also makes the tool easier to use. The American hickory they use actually makes all my tools so strong and attractive that I will be proud to hand them down to my children. I've even started looking for high quality antique tools at estate and garage sales so I can replace the handles and use them. They are like heirloom tools that anyone would be proud to own.


I bought a new handle for this axe at Lowes. I used it a couple of times and it split. I took it back and got another one, and installed it. A couple more uses, and it split. I got this one from Beaver Tooth, it fit without any sanding, chisling, etc. It is tight and works great. I will never buy a handle from anyone else. I'm guessing that this one is also going to last years.

Gorgeous handle. Just feels right, supple, rich, sturdy and perfectly shaped.

Great handle

Is a bit on the thick side and the grain has great orientation and no runout. Excellent handle. In the attached pictures the white handle is how it looked before staining/oiling and the darker is how it looks afterward.


these are very quality handles foe a fantastic price, i'm tellin' you.

these handles work great and look great with a jersey pattern I recently hung.

thanks beaver tooth!
