Hand Adze

an ancient tool still useful in a modern age

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 as well as sculpture. Our Hand Adze has a shaped carbon steel head securely affixed to an ash handle with two ring wedges. Short enough to comfortably use one-handed. Embrace the ancient pedigree. Using it provides natural feelings of competence and accomplishment.
