I've owned a Michigan double bit axe with a hickory handle forever. It was my Dad's before I inherited it. Between the two of us, it fell a lot of trees, cut a lot of timber, cleared a lot of land and has been a workhorse for all these years.
Yesterday, I was clearing an old logging road, making it wider to access a pasture on our property. As I was chopping a mid-sized pine, I took one swing (which made solid contact) and heard a odd "crack". I checked the axe handle and noticed the hickory had finally had enough and cracked immediately underneath the axe head.
Tonight I thought, I should retire that old axe and just buy a new Michigan axe with one of those fiberglass handles. I went to Amazon.com and did a search and came up with nothing but body spray. I'm going to the local hardware store in the morning. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Never you mind. The body spray will come in handy someday.
The kids call Axe "creepy uncle scent"...
Kidz are perceptive ...........
What is wrong with you only having one double bit axe.....good grief I keep two just in my little Bronco II with three more in the garage. The harware store is the only answer to get a handle and you probably have to pick through a dozen handles to get one good enough to use.
If they have a Tractor Supply Store in your area, they carry replacement handles.
If you "axe" me...I'd probably say that this thread has gone on long enough!
