I replaced the fiberglass handle on my 3# cross pein hammer with this one. The fiberglass handle was in pretty bad shape, I abused the crap out of it in my younger days. Spent some time fitting the eye so the head hung perfectly, Buckin Billy Ray would be proud. Wood is so much better. Sorry no before and after pictures. I have a single bit axe with a fiberglass handle that I also want to replace...maybe someday Beaver Tooth will get the 36" plain sanded curved handles in stock. Hint Hint!
Handle is exactly as described, seems to be good quality wood. Shipped by the schedule listed on sales page.
