I've ordered a few handles from HH but of the 5 I've ordered, only two remain hafted. my first 32" handle was fine. nice and straight. If I were to haft it again, I'd thin it out some more, especially near the shoulder, but its fine. my first 30" octagon had a serious tip and twist at the head end, so the axe head was pointing 20 deg to the right when looking down from above. I worked and worked on it to try to get it straight but eventually ran out of handle. I recently ordered a replacement 30" octagon and two 32" regular handles, all were hand selected and lacquer removed. when I received them though all 3 were octagon. so I thought, oh well, that's not a huge deal. all three had a slight twist, but nothing too serious - I think the octagon process must cut the handles with a slight twist, because they were all similar. The 30" handle I ended up sanding back oval, and now its nice and slim and I really like it. the bigger problem that I had with the two 32" handles - and actually something that seems common to the H handles is a serious constriction in the handle diameter right before the swell. I don't understand why they do this. The constriction was dramatic in one of the handles. On the worst of the two, the handle only measures 1" x 5/8" !!! Now, I'm all about a nice slim handle, but this is too much, and felt really weird in my hand. The other handle was 1 1/8" x 3/4" at the constriction before the swell - which I could kind of live with, but then the swell was 2" long, so I tried to "improve the shape and ended up ruining it. I don't want to bother with contacting them since I've already mounted and then removed heads from both. So, here is my question. is there anywhere else I can get good 30-32" handles. beaver tooth handle seems to only offer 36" I found that council tool offers a replacement 32" handle, so I'll probably try one of those. does anyone know how to order from tennessee hickory products? I went to their website, and didn't see an order form or anything. do they only sell wholesale? their website shows that they offer full size handles 30-36". also amazon offers link handles in 30 and 32" but the reviews are really poor, and it seems like it might be super hit or miss if you aren't able to pick them out by hand. has anyone had any good luck with ordered link handles? local stores only seem to carry 36". just making sure that I'm not missing something. I've done lots of searches, and I think this is everything, but just want to make sure. Thanks!
