    Hi everyone,

    I was just wondering if any if you lovely people could help me out.
    I have a really old AXE head which was my grandfathers, The handle rotted away years ago, and I have quite a nice Cherry Wood Pick Axe handle (was my grandfathers too).

    My question is this, Could I re-shape the Pick handle to fit the AXE head without damaging the integrity of the handle?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm sure you could, the problem is that a pick axe handle is straight, where as a axe handle is slightly curved, I'm not sure you could swing the axe properly for it to hit with the full cutting edge in contact using the pick handle.;)

    I'm a bit old to be wielding axes, but can comfirm what Phil says. The axe handle is shaped. I have no idea where you would get a replacement from. :(
