Protect the neck of your wooden hatchet or axe handle from overstrike damage with our Leather Handle Protector. The majority of handle damage starts at the neck, just below the head, either from miss-swings or normal wear and tear. Handle protectors protect this vulnerable area, and significantly increase handle longevity. They are easy to fit and give your toolan authentic look and feel. Comes with beeswax coated cotton lace.
Made in the USA from thick quality, vegetable-tanned, top-grain cowhide to match our sheaths.
The Campfire Hatchet size has a max width of 110mm and length of 105mm and fits the Campfire Hatchet and Explorer Pack Axe.
The Axe size has a max width of 145mm and length of 145mm and fits the Bothy Axe.
Although designed to fit Caledonian Axe Co. Hatchets and Axes, they do fit other makes and models. Measure the circumference of your handle to make sure it will fit. Note: the edges of the leather are not designed to meet exactly at the back. A gap allows for stretch in the leather over time and provides room for the lacing.
