Due to a Nationwide raw material and labor shortage, the availability of Wildland tools and replacement handles has been severely impacted and long delays are anticipated. If you are ordering out of stock tools or handles, please consider placing these on a separate order from other items to avoid the delay of non-tool items. Tool orders will be processed and filled in the order in which they are received as our stock replenishes.
This custom handle has been redesigned from the original J.R. Fire Tools hickory handle and is now even better! It is made from premium grade hickory wood and it tapers to a strong rectangular block, reducing grain-splitting and fitting seamlessly into the new Rectangular Universal Neck. This ergonomic handle is curved to give you more powerful digging action. It is longer and stronger than the average hoe handle and will save your back while working long, hard hours on the fire line. It comes with striking tool epoxy. Designed for use with the J.R. Fire Tools Rectangular Universal Neck. The handle can be used with any J.R. Fire Tools head with the J.R. Fire Tools Rectangular Universal Neck. Made in the USA.
