N2 Replacement handle for Chernigov X and Roslavl X Axes

Petrograd axe handles made of hard, strong, smooth textured Norway maple wood with the grain correctly either rift or aligned with the head (i.e. not quartersawn). Grain runout is minimised as far as is possible with a manufactured handle and the straightest stock is selected for the longer handles where forces involved are greater. Norway maple isn't brittle like sugar maple, although not quite as strong as hickory, or quite as light as ash, its outstanding quality is absorbing rather than transmitting shock and vibration.
