I have a double bit axe that was in my Dad's shop and is now in my posession and as it is sans a handle I went down to the local hardware store and bought a handle for it. Well, it doesn't fit and it was the only axe handle they had. The hole in the axe is longer than the part of the handle that fits in there is. And the guys down there at the hardware don't know anything about it. On the handle that is on it now the label says 28" CRUISERS DOUBLE BIT OR. This handle is a little short also. My question is, how can I find a handle that will fit it. I have a couple of pictures here. My question was kind of aimed at Burnham as he is kind of a gear expert, but if some of you others have some axe knowledge, bring it on! I don't really have any use for this axe but it is kind of a family "heirloom" now as it may have come from my Grandfather and I want to fix it up.
