Description

For those axe enthusiasts who wish to carve their own axe handles! We have various handle styles for which we cut the blanks out of in house. This is a good alternative for those who wish not to spend the full cost of having us properly carve and hang your axe for you. All handle blank wood is fully seasoned, dry, and is cut to have the straightest grain possible.

*Note figured woods such as curly ash are cut to have the most figure at the expense of grain orientation! Recommended that they be mostly used for show pieces, wall hangers or even users! Use it and compare to other woods to truly see if grain orientation is important or not! *

    The best quality handle blanks I’ve seen and for a SUPER affordable price! I’ve purchased many types of handle blanks in all of the woods available and they all performed EXCELLENT with the Osage and hickory being my favorite. They are shipped quick and are certainly not the last time they will be purchased by me!

    When Thrane says premium handles he means it. My handles came with perfectly straight grain, wonderfully cured and at a width of 5/4″ there is enough material to carve out exactly what you want for your handle. Communication was easy, he responded quickly and took my order with care; I received exactly what I ordered. And as a sweet surprise for my first order he shipped a free selection of wedges from Osage wood to walnut. Working with these blanks have been fantastic and I know I will be a return customer. So do yourself a favor and order some blanks and make your next axe project a cherished custom piece that you can take pride in knowing you got the best wood available and carved it yourself.

    Excellent blanks. I put off getting blanks for some time but after getting these I wished I had gotten some sooner. I was quite shocked when I got them because they are such good quality. An other nice thing is that they come over sized so I was able to shape them the way I wanted and not stuck with something like when you buy one from the store. I’ve been highly recommending them to anyone that likes to carve their own handles. I even got one curly ash. It is a bit tricky to work with curly grain wood but the end product is very well worth the little extra effort. The curly ash Would be great for a show piece. i also ordered a dozen walnut wedges, they add a nice personal touch and bit of flare. Soon as I can afford more handles I will definitely be placing an other order. Customer service cant be beat, every time i had a question he was fast to respond.

    I can’t recommend these handle blanks enough, the quality of the wood is top notch, and the price is very reasonable. It’s also a pretty enjoyable process making your own handle and you will learn a lot about woodworking as well. You don’t have to be a pro either, I wasn’t by any means when I started but since they come in the basic shape of a handle it makes it easy to get it right, but there’s still enough work to do on your part and enough material so that you can customize the handle to your liking. I won’t use any other handle for my personal axes, the quality is unmatched and I’m kind of a perfectionist and these allow me to make handles exactly to my liking so these are perfect. Also this is the only place I’ve been able to find handle blanks, not to mention ones made from wood other than hickory. I’ve yet to find Osage Orange, curly ash, black locust, etc in pieces large enough for a handle, never mind a handle blank and this quality. Would 100% recommend.

    Black locust…. Yes. Excellent quality, deep straight grain with very little runoff. High density and hardness, amazing rich texture with some natural nut oil rubbed in. Highly recommended!

    Elm Hatchet and Pulaski Blanks

    Every product I receive from Nick is top notch. Fine wood, proper grain orientation. I love the quality of the elm I get from Nick. It carves great and each blank is straight as an arrow. I take great pride in the wood that Nick provides. Forging my own axe heads and collecting axes, each one that goes into one of my collections or one of my forged pieces makes them all the more special. Proud to support this American Company!

    Tried out the first of Nick’s sassafras blanks. I had my doubts when I got it in my hand but the grain was straight and parallel, very good quality material. Super light and quick to work with a blade, watch for tear outs though! Stood up well in initial use and pleasantly surprised with it so far!. Worth a try if you like making nice hefty handles!
