Re-birth of an old Hatchet--Thanks to Beaver-Tooth
As a kid, I found an old hatchet, presumably used by N.W. Bell in construction. That was about 70 years ago. I recently found the hatchet in my garage, bespattered with paint, rusty and with an old deteriorating handle. Removing the old handle, cleaning and resharpening the head was the easy part. The hard part was finding a good handle and a sheath. After many hours of research, I found Beaver-Tooth Handle Co. I found a replacement handle using their measurements for the eye and also found what I believed would be a good sheath. The measurements in the web site helped trememdously. As I never replaced a hatchet head before, I followed Beaver-Tooth's instructions, and even got on line help to assure I was fitting things properly. The end product is a re-born hatchet with a beatuful handle firmly installed and encased in a sheath that seems tailor made for this old head. While it took a while to receive the items, it was well worth the wait and Beaver-Tooth's responsive support along with their excellent products have made this old guy very happy. My daughter will now have a nice little hatchet for her camping. Thanks, Beaver-Tooth.
I used this to rehang my great grandfather’s hatchet and it worked great! Super durable feel and very well made.
Replaced htwo handles for two throwing axes. Held up great so far. Have to order again because I ordered the wrong size for the half hatchet. Couldn’t find a handle with the right dimensions on the website so I bough one that I thought would work. It didn’t but that’s my bad.
Very little adjustment needed for a great fit rehanging an old Plumb BSA hatchet.
A little sanding and it fit like a glove. Thank you.
