Bowl & Carving Adze

Designed as efficient stock removal woodcarving and woodworking timber tools. For sculpting organic shapes. Adze carving 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 for making
our carving adze.
The saw blade steels we hand forge are high quality carbon steels .
Very tough and strong steels.
Another choice of steel stock we build from would be leaf spring steel, 5160,
also an excellent high carbon steel for adze blades.

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.
