The adze is used to hew posts and beams in traditional carpentry and today the adze is also used by sculptors, boatbuilders, and chairmakers. 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. If you have questions about mounting of the handle - please message me!
