Unfortunately, I ordered the wrong handle for my G.I. pick axe and had to re-order for the right one. However, the craftsmanship of the handle and the quality of the wood used is outstanding. Now, I just have to find the right head for the handle.
Nicely made. I liked it
This was my first order from Beaver- tooth.com so I did not know what to expect. It took a while for me to receive the product, longer than I had hoped. When the product arrived, I was delighted to see that it was a quality piece of wood with nice tight grain and the fit was almost perfect. All in all, I'm very satisfied with my purchase and will order more handles as needed.
Could not find a 18" gi pick handle anywhere! Not only did I find it here@ Beaver Tooth Handle Co , it's cool looking and the wood grain pops after a little boiled linseed oil. thanks Bever Tooth Handle Co,
I received my 18" G.I. Pick Handle American Hickory and I went and purchased a Nicholson 8 in. Woodcraft Half-Round Rasp and took to cutting down the handle. It went easy and fast and measured for fit as I went along and with a little over 1 hour I had finished and I was able to snuggly add my pick axe head marked 1943 US DIAMOND CALK and I added a little paint so as not to lose it in the garden dirt.
