Jay the handle is like a soft tire compound, it should last forever. It is’t going to work as a hammer against hard sharp objects. The back edge is wide enough to use for pounding things so I’m not bothered. I don’t like abusing the handles of my tools anyway, it makes them useless and none of them are designed for abuse. I’ll destroy the business end of a tool, but not what I have to hold in my hand.
