Strong and flexible American White Ash wood handle blanks. Almost as strong as Hickory and without the brittleness of Oak this is a great wood for making impact tool handles. 350mm x 24mm x 40mm. We make sure the grain is aligned with the direction of impact as much as possible.

"White Ash has excellent shock resistance, and along with hickory (Carya spp.), it is one of the most commonly used hardwoods for tool handles in North America—particularly in shovels and hammers where toughness and impact resistance is important."
