This was for my husband, he is very happy with this handle. He says it fits like a glove.
I had ordered two handles for my Dad to replace broken, missing ones for his pick axes. It did take 7 weeks to get the handles but the manufacturer posted on his website that he is a one man operation and custom makes them. He had also mentioned he had been sick and gotten backed up on orders. Very transparent and I appreciated that. When I got the order I was impressed with the workmanship. My Dad's first words when I gave the handles to him was "wow, those are nice!" Definitely worth the wait and if we need anymore handles, the place we will order them from!
Nice stick of hickory! Grain is really good and the fit to my 1945 GI pick was also like it was supposed to be, overall, very pleased!
Fit well, nice piece of wood
