Nicely made. Easily fitted. Good product. Will buy again when needed.
I needed to replace the handle in an old adze that belonged to my grandfather. I spent a lot of time as a young lad helping him with chores around his property in the early 1960's so the adze had a lot of sentimental value to me. At some point the handle got broken,(by me) and granddad being a very frugal man taped the handle vs replacing it. He never said a word about me breaking it. Fast forward 55+ years I decided to make a project out of restoring his adze into a useful tool. Unable to find a handle in my area for such an old tool I ordered one from" Beaver Tooth Handle Company". What a pleasant surprise when I opened the box. Inside was a top quality hickory handle that fit perfectly and required very little fitting. I will definitely do business with them in the future. My mother who is 90 got a tear in her eyes when she saw her dad's adze restored to like new condition. I know granddad smiled down too. .
Replacement handle fit like a glove. Great turnaround time on the delivery. Very good quality. Its nice to see someone still making a great product.
2- adze handles, 1-broad axe, 1 broad hatchet hung with Beaver tooth products. Grain was parallel on the three long handles and probably at about 45 degrees on the hatchet which I'm sure will be fine. Mostly sapwood on all of them.
It took a little time but well worth the wait for a quality product made in the USA. The fitting was easy, balance is perfect and euronomics could not be better. An old forged Adez head is now brought back to service. I'm so impressed, I ordered handles for an heirloom hammer collecting dust in my workshop and potato fork missing a handle for my Victory Garden this season! I am from Oregon (The Beaver State) and Beaver-Tooth products are a fit with me.
