Hi everyone tonight:

WE have certainly given this subject a good going over I hope that those that are stopping by will benefit from our discussions especially if they are trying to grasp or maybe getting up the courage to try and hew a timber for the first time.

I prefer a 28 inch--3" offset handle for my broadaxe, and it does correspond to handles that we have in our tool collection at UCV.

Whether this is the correct length for everyone is not for me to say but maybe you mightlike to throw in a few remarks on the subject
