Is there a world wide handle shortage, or just in England ? Mostly I'd not got round to hanging heads as I've been side tracked by work, kids or other family issues but partly I hadn't got the handles. IdI looked a few times and they'd been out of stock. Well I found some in stock at last... Possibly not the ideal lengths but good enough. So 1 Arvika haft (needed for its extra eye thickness as I could find no other 28+mm wide) and 2 smedbergs straight 28" handles ordered. Just shy of £100 after postage... I better make a good job of these!
