The Adze has been around almost forever. Shipwrights, carpenters, and railroaders all had their own version of it. Archaeologists have found stone-relief sculptures of Egyptian boat-makers using the tool, and indigenous tribes of the Pacific Northwest used the Adze for both the practical (canoes) and the ceremonial/artistic (masks and totem poles). Adzes continue to be useful in artisanal woodworking tasks such as beam-making and sculpture. Learn more about how the Adze could become the next essential in your tool chest today!
