These hand-forged handle wedges are ribbed to stay firmly in place once driven in. The blunt tip splits the wood fibres instead of cutting a path through. This avoids creating a weak spot in the critical area where most handle breakage occurs. We use 2 wedges per hammer handle. Typically ships in 1 week.
Choose a wedge size that is 3/4 of the depth of the eyehole and drive it in 45° off of the centerline until the wedge head is 1/8" below the surface of the wood.
