  Tool Handles 2 of 2  

This photo illustrates the natural curve of the hickory handle on the scorp.

This is a detail of the hickory handle on the wheel traveler.

This photo illustrates the use of corn cobs for handles. The top specimen is a cranked gouge used to inlet barrels on blackpowder rifles. The bottom specimen is a race knife or timber scribe used to cut numerals on matching joints in timber framing.

This photo illustrates the use of horns for handles. The specimen on the left is an early gimlet with the tip of a cow horn for a handle and the specimen on the right is the tip of a deer horn serving as the handle for an early corkscrew.
