Traditional use of the adze is for removing bark and trimming or shaping timber. Authentic log home builders, as well as traditional shipbuilders, make use of the adze. Artists and sculptors use various sizes of adzes for making totem poles, masks and bowls. Craftspeople who follow age-old customs use adzes for making barrel staves, forming chair seats and making bowls and troughs.
The adze head have conic shape of the eye. The handle is from beech tree and it is made at lathe. It have conic shape also and fits perfectly to the adze eye. The handle is removable because of the easy sharpening of the adze blade as it should be!
You will receive the adze removed out of the handle and you should mount it tight. It is a "slip fit" type of handle. The unnecessary part of the handle should be cuted appr half inch from the adze.
