This hickory handle is incredibly hard, so hard I considered keeping it as a club vice putting it on my froe. I did put it on the froe and it is plenty strong to pry wood open with 0 concern of the handle breaking. Pull the trigger and look no further for great handles. Super smooth finish!
I got a hand-made froe blade from a former violin maker and needed a handle suitable for such a storied tool. This one fit the bill (and the blade) perfectly!
This looks to be excellent grade wood combined with quality workmanship. No Chinese bamboo here!
Im very satisfied with the quality of this product and highly recommend Beaver Tooth Handle Company.
So glad to find this company. I sell antique tools and often need to replace the handles. Very reasonable prices.
