Bought this to use with a head I bought on Ebay. After showing it to my friend who's also getting into blacksmithing, he liked it so much, I made it a gift to him.
Well made handle. Smooth finish that took oil right off. Came with wood and steel wedges. Time will tell if it'll *ahem* handle forging work over time. Going on a 5# striker sledge soon.
Outstanding product. My favorite hammer is alive and kickin. Too quality handles at great prices. Highly recommend Bever-tooth handles.
I drift my hammer eyes for this handle. My region has no Southeastern highland American Hickory available so I buy it here. World class quality and from a cool American company. Use these for heavy forging.
