This European made two-handed adze has a blade width of 70mm. It makes a great tool for carving out wide or deep hollows. Dug-out canoes may come into mind, although rustic and restoration work is probably more likely.
The blade is forged Cr-Mn steel with a carefully hardened cutting edge (HRC 55) for excellent edge retention. The gently curved handle is ash, 620mm long with a natural finish. The blade comes with a polished out-cannel bevel. We recommend honing and polishing the inside of the bevel in order to get the best performance from this tool.
Supplied with a strong leather edge protector.
