Axe Handles

There is no reason why a good quality hand forged axe should not see a lifetime of service. The component most likely to require replacement from time to time are axe handles.

Here at WOODSMITH, we absolutely want to offer help and support to keep axes working efficiently and safely. Far too often today when tools break they are thrown away. We can help by offering the best restoration advice and by stocking as many axe spares as we can.

As one of the UK’s most committed retailers of Swedish axes, we aim to keep replacement axe handles for all of the axes we stock. These are genuine replacements as originally fitted to the axe when bought new. Made in Sweden and normally come with a pre-sawn kerf, a hardwood wedge and a steel wedge.

To support the renovation of older English axes from makers such as Elwell, Brades and Gilpin we stock a range of prime hickory fawn-foot handles from 12″-36″.  Made in a similar style to the handles originally fitted and made in the UK. These come complete with a pre-sawn kerf, a hardwood wedge and a steel wedge.

For more modern axes and hatchets we have a full range of hickory replacement axe handles from Swedish makers Smedbergs.  These also come complete with a pre-sawn kerf, a hardwood wedge and a steel wedge.

For those who would prefer not to do axe renovation work themselves, our fully equipped workshop can offer any level of service including handle replacement, head grinding and sharpening and sheath making.
