The axe handle was good straight grained hickory and fit my axe head perfectly. It replaced one that J previously purchased from Beaver Tool but was seriously abused by a friend of my daughter while camping and needed replacing.
Here she is. Not the best steel, but it should be useful for quite a while now. Locally, hard to find 2 1/2 lb Miner's axe handle. Treated with Boiled Linseed oil.
