The handle is top quality. - straight, blemish/knot free. Smooth bare finish (I'm adding three coats of boiled linseed oil) and has what seems to be a very slight tapered thickening at the lower/butt end (I didn't measure), which provides a solid grip. Good quality wooden and metal wedges included. My 8 lb. splitting maul is back in business. I'll buy more handles for other tools.
I have ordered a few times and I’m even more impressed every time. The holes fit perfectly and the handles are high quality. I got my great grandfathers sledge back into use for a fraction of the cost of a new one, and I trust that it will outlast any new ones. Shipping is a bit slow but with everything going on it is understandable and well worth the wait.
I will be ordering again
Ordered sledgehammer handles before and was very impressed. The most recent purchase not so much. These current handles are smaller and more expensive. Probably will not order again. Good handles just not as good as last time. Why are they so much smaller?
my second order but wont be the last
I bought four of these handles. Each one was of top quality. No defects on any of them. Would definitely recommend these handles. Shipping does take a little time, which they are very up front about and these handles are well worth the wait. Will be buying from Beaver-Tooth again.
