Bowl & Carving Adze

Designed as efficient stock removal woodcarving and woodworking timber tools. For sculpting organic shapes. A carving adze for bowls, masks, totem poles, dug-out canoes, large or small wood or ice sculpture and hewing timbers and logs. Excellent bushcraft tools.

We recover saw blades from lumber mills in central  British Columbia. 
The saw blade steels we hand forge are  high quality carbon steels . 
Very tough and strong tool steels.
Another choice of steel stock would be spring steel, also an excellent 
high carbon steel for adze. 

We handforge, harden and then differentially temper the blades. The cutting edge produced is exceptional, while the rest of the head is tough. These hand tools are tough, strong and balanced.  You can request the angle of blade to handle and handle length as well as the shape of the adze edge.

We live in  British Columbia, Canada on the edge of the Chilcotin plateau. We are off the grid, have no phone, our power is solar electric and our communication is via satellite through the internet.  We work using sustainable and traditional methods. To contact us please e-mail.
