Pretty simple here… Made it from some dark hickory scraps some one was gonna toss. I prefer a double curve to my handles so I can use the part of the handle near the head or further away. I save every old hatchet I can find, well axes too. A little cleaning as you can see and they are ready for years of use again. I like this one a little sharper than most would prefer since I use it for woodworking too. It is currently my favorite hatchet, and I use it mainly for making kindling for campfires. I have one for small splitting jobs.
Anyway this handle turned out pretty good so I thought I’d post it. Anyone who has old hatchets, camp axes, splitting mauls that they don’t want send ‘em over my way. I just like them!!!
