Double-bit hickory axe handle

Really good product. Well-finished, easy to work and hang the head. Especially appreciated the lack of any lacquer or coating, so it takes linseed oiling straight away.
Leather sheath, also from Beaver Tooth, fits perfectly. I now have one beautiful renewed double-bit axe.

Bought for son

Bought this ax handle for my son and he loves the ax handle and the company. Awesome workmanship. Great quality and great service!! Thank you!

Quality takes time

Worth the wait. My son and I put it all together, quality handle, quality time.

Great Fit!

This handle was a great fit for my old Plumb axe, and it's a pleasure to swing!

Solid slinger

This was my first time re-handling an axe and this double bit axe handle from Beaver Tooth was a perfect fit, making for a solid slinger. The balance was great! The wood was smooth and tough. I may have gotten lucky on the first axe project but all in all I was very pleased and have ordered a second one for my next double bit.


Covid has caused a lot of disruptions in the supply chain of handles in every area as well as price volatility in the market. So if you can wait 30+ days or more great. If you need it now well you still have to wait. We are doing our best, but we are waiting much longer for materials, products, shipping etc. You can now buy gift cards for folks stuck at home needing a project!

We promise to only send you good things.
