Cast and after that forged and tempered sculpting, wood carving and a wood working BOWL adze. It combines sharp blade and claw hammer. The whole in the center is for pulling nails. Very useful and well balanced. Very sharp and durable blade. AISI-4150 HRC 50-55 !!! 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. Please NOTE! 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!

My second complaint is that the adze head has a very acute angle relative to the handle. I would guess it's a 45 to 48 degree angle whereas other adzes I've used are less acute. The shape of the head makes it difficult controlling the angle of attack and getting a good lick at the wall of a bowl.
My final complaint is that the shape off the adze is more of an "U" vs the gentle slope/flared blade that is illustrated in the item picture.
With my limited experience I would categorize the adze I received as excellent, to nearly perfect. My only criticisms are it could have been sharper, and I would like the handle to be a bit thicker in the grip, it couldn't be much thicker given the slip fit of the head though. The head fits very well, there has been no movement after a fair bit of use. If anything, it gets tighter through use.
My next adze will be a bit straighter, and the edge will have a shallower curve. These are not criticisms of this adze, but I think another as described would be nice. If this maker has such an adze, I'll be getting one from him over any other I've seen on Amazon. Delivered 2 weeks ahead of schedule.
