I've called hardware stores and they all can sell the handles but no one can install. Guess it is kind of a dying art...


You mean like prepping for the Zombie Apocolypse?!?!

Yeah I've got some old gear in need on handles. Gotta work thru some green black locust rounds before they petrify. Everything I've read says new steel tools are disposable at best. May try and DIY if there isn't an artist close by for this sort of thing.

Likely made overseas in a foreign land, I wouldn't trust it plus it's a slap to American work ethics.

It's not that hard but it can take awhile if you have to trim a bunch of that very hard wood to fit into the head. I've done it with both a very sharp sheath knife and with a mini grinder. Look it up as a DIY project and take it on as a challenge.

I'll save you the googling:
