Do you have access to straight grain hickory, if so you could just make one. I’ve made quiet a few and it’s not too bad after you get the hand of it.

Are those offset?

I made one from a tree branch.

Are you looking for a broad ax handle? Those are offset to the right or left.

Those do not appear to be offset—I have two brand name broad hatchets, and neither has an offset handle—that’s taken care of by the offset head, but here is ANOTHER OPTION
