Just as advertised. Perhaps even better grade than I was expecting.
Excellent handle. I put this on a rigging hatchet and did a fire finish with some linseed oil and it turned on beautiful. Minor adjustments for the fit and the wedges fit perfectly. Currently purchasing 3 more handles.
I measured the eye of my hatchet, but I ordered a hatchet handle that was a bit too large for the hatchet eye. I had to change the shape a bit to fit into the head. The hatchett is very old (80+ years), so a non standard eye shape was expected.
Now I have a functioning roofing hatchet for cedar shingles and siding. I am pleased.
Fit, finish ,and apparent quality of the handles I received were superior. They were even shipped/delivered sooner than I expected. As time allows I am looking through my tools to identify more handles needing replacement. You guys will get my next order in a few weeks.
