    How long are they? Are they straight or do the curve farther down in the picture? They look like average handles for 3-5 lb heads.

    They look like full size axe handles but we can't be sure without some dimensions.

    Straight single bit style with a double bit eye? That's new to me.

    Oh, wait. Now that I see the eye shape I think they might be drift pick handles.

    They would work for Adirondack axes as well.

    These are single shouldered. Maybe they are Oregon woodchoppers maul handles?

    Looks like they are large axe eye maul handles.

    They could also be used for a Pulaski right?

    A pulaski eye is the same length as a double bit axe eye, 3", but is slightly thinner, 5/8" instead of 3/4". I don't know why they are thinner but it makes them prone to breaking under the least sideways prying.

    A double bit axe eye maul has an even shorter stouter eye, 7/8" x 2-1/8".

    If you want an un-kerfed haft for a double bit (perhaps you're hanging an axe with eye ridges) then consider a drift pick handle. They're slightly thicker, 1" x 3", but they can easily be thinned.

    And if somebody wants a long double-bit handle (up to 44") for a Puget Sound felling axe, they can rasp down a "fletcher mattock" handle from House Handle, as described by jheath:
