WHY HICKORY PEAVEY HANDLE?

Hickory is the hardest and strongest wood found in North America. Its abundance for commercial availability is 2.2% of total U.S. hardwoods.

Well known for its strength and shock-resistant properties, Hickory is extremely tough, resilient, even-textured, very hard and rated only moderately heavy - providing excellent strength-to-weight ratios. Peavey Handles made of Hickory will outlast and out-perform other hardwoods for years of reliable service. Scientific tests for toughness performed by the USDA Forest Service show that Hickory is 47% stronger than Maple.*

With a strict quality standard, Dixie Industries always has, and always will use White Hickory for the wood handles.

PEAVEY HANDLE MADE OF MAPLE

Maple, also a hardwood, has good strength properties, but dries slowly with high shrinkage and can be susceptible to movement in performance. Maple’s abundance for commercial availability is 4% of total U.S. hardwoods - making it a cheaper alternative to Hickory.

NOTE: This handle is a replacement for the original handle and does not include the hook and pick assembly.
