My son bought a home and found a old hatchet head covered by debris in his yard. So as a house warming gift I took it to clean, sharpen and attach a new hatchet. It had no handle so I had nothing to go by. I never knew there were so many different types of hatchets. Luckily I found this website and selected the proper handle. The head still has many rust pits, but it's shiny, sharp and has a great handle. With the time & money I spent restoring this hatchet I could have bought 3! (Not referring to the price I paid here...I purchased other handles that did not fit plus rust removal agents, sandpaper and polishing pads) But that would not be the same. Thanks guys! Great handle for a new family heirloom.
I found an antique hatchet head when we moved to our house. Cleaned it up and could not find a handle that would fit as the handle eye was small. I contacted Beaver Tooth, and they recommended a handle that might fit if pared down. A quality handle arrived and it was a perfect fit without the need for trimming. I have some blacksmith hammer heads without handles and will be looking for other quality handles from this seller. Totally satisfied.
Fits perfectly! Nice handle.
Great handle. It fit very well with minimal fitting. The grain is straight and the finish is excellent.
