When it comes to a wooden handle it is the WOOD that counts. The handle I received was knot free and straight grained. It was sized as advertised and required only minor fitting to install. I haven't had the chance to give it a hard workout, but don't expect any problems
Super handle, fit my hardware perfectly. Treated the handle with boiled linseed oil then a soft luster wax. It's ready to start turning logs... The handle has a nice clean grain. Should be strong as a bull.
Just what I was looking for. Excellent quality workmanship!
Bought it for a friend. He put a sealer on it and said it fit perfectly.
Wood grain looks well centered have not used yet
