As usual every time I order a handle from Beaver Tooth I get exactly what I need and it fits with very little work to install. The website is very easy as well to navigate.
Very pleased with these high quality hatchet handles !
A tad slow on delivery but worth waiting for. The handle was specified as not top grade, I don't know why. Beautiful straight grain and perfectly shaped. Took a considerable amount of rasp and sanding work for a good fit. My great -uncle's very old broad hatchet rusty and ugly after sanding and polishing, edge filled to cut paper looks better than new with this handle. Will do business here again.
It was listed as having defects and that is correct. It was made from a significantly defective piece of wood. It will work fine as an occasionally used tool for splitting kindling at home. No complaints - you get what you pay for and I paid $1.50 + shipping. I would have paid another $5 if the higher quality was available. All of my other handles from this company have been primo. I'll order from them again.
Seems strong. Wedges and such feel like they will hold the hatchet together well.
