Casstrom overstrike guard
This classic 100% cowhide leather overstrike guard / handle protector from Casstrom protects the top of your axe handle from damage during splitting.
When you misfire and hit the block of wood with the shaft instead of the axe head, we call that an 'overstrike'. This can sooner or later cause your axe handle to crack and become less strong and even unsafe, thanks to the overstrike guard / handle protection these misses are absorbed. Also when you hit the axe head quite far back in the block, the top of the axe handle often comes into contact with the wood, at these times the overstrike guard / handle protection protects your axe handle!
Another advantage is the comfortable grip that the overstrike guard / handle protection can offer to the somewhat thinner axe handles, just a little more body! This is especially practical when woodworking.
The overstrike guard is suitable for axes up to 13-14cm in circumference.
