With a blade width of 1.968 inch and a total length of 11.417 inch, this woodworkers adze is intended to work with one hand in order to e.g. create small bowls or trays. The adze (/├Ždz/; alternative spelling: adz) is a cutting tool shaped somewhat like an axe that dates back to the stone age. It can be any tool with a sharp cutting edge.[1] Adzes are used for smoothing or carving wood in hand woodworking, similar to an axe but with the cutting edge perpendicular to the handle. Two basic forms of an adze are the hand adze, a short handled tool swung with one hand, and a foot adze, a long handled tool capable of powerful swings using both hands, the cutting edge usually striking at foot or shin level. The blade of an adze is set at right angles to the tool’s shaft (like a hoe or plane), in contrast to an axe’s blade, which is in plane with the shaft. A similar, but blunt, tool used for digging in hard ground is called a mattock.

Examples of Adze use:
For various woodworking tasks, such as carpentry and finishing of joints, hand manufacture of corner rafters and rafters armpit or the removal of wood in wood carving.
