Received the maul handle along with several other handles that I had ordered. Straight and knot free, twice the quality of what the hardware store had. Back in business with an 8lb "Mad in USA" maul.
I believe this is my 4th order from Beaver Tooth and once again my order was filled perfectly, all four handles were exactly what I expected and excellent quality! One of these four was a Splitting Maul handle and with just minor shaping it fit perfectly. I did have to sand the wax finish off, so that raw linseed oil could be applied. Also, the handle I replaced had been fitted with two large, round wedges, which I think these handles should be supplied with, instead of the straight, step wedges. All in all, my opinion remains that Beaver Tooth is the best in the business. Well done!
Nice handles! You keep cranking 'em out. If I don't improve my swing with that 8 pound splitting maul, I'll be ordering a few more. :-)
The handle I received was the nicest hand crafted white hickory I've ever purchased. I did have to fit the handle to the maul but that is a given on most axes/mauls I've ever hung. You won't be disappointed!
After using it for about a week, I am quite satisfied with the handle. Excellent quality. It fit the 8 lb. maul head perfectly, without any need for trimming. It feels good in my hands.
