The is the best handle at a great price. I will never buy a handle from anywhere except here at Beaver-Tooth Handle Co. I've seen handles a little cheaper but no where near the quality you get here.
All of my handles had great grain direction! From slightly vertical to very vertical so i couldn’t ask for more.
As the title states great quality and price
Great hatchet handle, will be ordering more!
I put this handle on my Vaughan riggers hatchet, and although it took a fair amount of rasp work it felt great on the hatchet once it was fitted. The laquer was thick as with any handle you buy, and took some effort to remove completely. But gave a real nice feel with some hand rubbed oil finish. These are still the best handles I can find for someone who is not a millionaire. I don't buy anything besides beaver tooth.
