Axe Handle

I've been playing with the scales that my in-laws gave me for Christmas and now have two bits on important information.

  1. Scandi knives, even a Leuku, are pretty light
  2. My axe head is a 2.5lb head
Looking through some of the books I've got this suggests a handle length of between 24 and 36 inches, 600-900mm. I'll be going to the local tool and DIY shop next week to look for handles and hopefully will be able to get something nicely grained towards the top end of this range.
