A collection of western style handles. Unmarked. Many made up of unmatching components.

A pair of John Sells handles.
Out of all the handles I've tried they are my favorite, no wing nut on the back.
Apparently there was two styles made. A long guard for bucking and a short guard for falling, lest likely to snag on your clothing.

Auxiliary Handles:

I bought a 4-ft D-handle that I think is a Keystone Champion Tooth. It had an unusable rusted Disston No. 118 auxiliary handle. I had to cut apart the handle, turn new wood, and weld a new stud to the fork.

The photos show the steps along with a home-made handle that has a stove bolt that I split. I drilled and tapped the wood to accept the bolt.

Atkins No. 80, Pat. May 2, 1922
After looking at pictures of another handle of this type, this may be a No. 30, even though the cast number appears to be an 80.

Loop handle: I turned a new handle out of ironwood (aka hophornbeam, ostrya virginiana) to replace the original. I suspect it originally had a barrel nut.
