The handle has excellent wood and workmanship is unsurpassed. The shipping on the other hand is painfully slow. We use these for pick mattocks for woman who work on our volunteer trail crew
Took a while to determine the correct handle for my size Maddock. It fits like sausage in its casing. A little JB Weld applied to the upper and lower seams to fill in the irregularities of this very old head for a finished look.
My dad had the head of an old mattock that has been in our family for a while and asked me to find a replacement handle. The mattock eye was smaller than the others I own so I had trouble finding a handle that provided the eye dimensions that the handle would fit. I found the beaver-tooth website and it gave all of the details I needed to know the handle was correct for the size eye on my mattock. After some sanding and fitting to match the shape of the inside of the eye, the mattock looks great. Really great piece of wood.
These handles are worth every penny! I used these to restore two old Mattacks. Thanks!
Like most, I could not find a replacement handle for my #7 pick axe anywhere local. Found Beaver-tooth Handle Co. on the web and was very impressed with the quality. It was not a "perfect" fit but after a little sanding it was a great fit. Worth the wait to get a great product!
