Adzes

Adzes

Adzes and broad axes have been used for centuries in log cabin building. An Adze (also spelled as adz) is an edge tool of ancient origins which is used for smoothing or carving wood in hand woodworking, similar to an axe but with the head mounted 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), unlike the blade of an axe which is set in line with the shaft.

I just received my order from you and as always the Cold Steel Products were the excellent quality that I have come to expect from them. The Customer Service and Communication from you has made this transaction a pleasure.. Your prices are some of the lowest I've found on the items I wanted and the service has been excellent. I have book marked your site and will certainly look to you for my future needs. You have an amazing selection I'm sure I'll be back often. Thanks again for an enjoyable shopping experience.
