The quality jumps right out at you, with a great finish and beautiful grain.
Definitely not a hardware store product.
Wow everything about this process was very easy. After receiving the handle it just slipped right in, put the wood wedge in cut it off and the the steel wedge. This by far was the easiest axe handle i have ever installed.
Thank you and I look forward to working with you again.
Everything as described. Fairly Priced. Great product.
The shape, cut, finish is good. This is the good straight grained Hickory that is expexted. The grain orientatin was just ok. In other words, if you need the grain to be paealell to the bit then spend the extra money to the next level up. Mine had grain that was almost perpendicular. Should be fine for what I need. I would buy again. In fact this is my third time buying this grade.
Ordered a #2 grade 36" hickory handle and was very surprised at how nice the grain and color were on this $13 handle. Very nice product and the handle was almost a perfect fit on a 3.5 pound Collins axe head.
It took a while to get the handle, but I noticed on the website that one of their key employees was struggling with an illness. Hope she is doing better. I will be ordering more handles.
