a round trip ferry ride to an island off the coast of Washington,
and every dollar I had in my wallet to get this beauty. I still owe $6.00.
Totally worth it.
This is a hand made adz gutter adz. It cuts across the wood grain and is used for roughing out sculpture. Just what I need for the monster log in the driveway.
A well designed adze removes wood quickly with a great deal of control.
Your wrist angle determines the amount of wood cut, from tiny chips to cutting off big chunks.
The level of knowledge and care that went into creating this beautiful adz is amazing.
The lower end of the handle has a shallow texture to ensure a solid grip.
If this weren't as deadly sharp as it is beautiful, I'd take it to bed like a new teddy bear.
