Jonathan’s Hot Take:
An adze is the hand tool of choice for quickly hogging out curved hollows in boards.
Whether for a saddled seat or greenwood bowl (or log canoe if you really want a workout), this hand-forged adze is the best choice for roughing out recesses.
Follow up with an inshave to refine and smooth out your work, or leave the adze marks for added texture.
The maker of these tools has been manufacturing high quality woodworking and carving hand tools in Pakistan for over three generations.
All their tools are hand-forged, and as a result each tool is unique and may vary slightly in appearance from the photos… but that’s what makes ‘em special.
I’ve been absolutely blown away by the quality of the craftsmanship. Not just in how well their tools work — but how friggin’ cool they look.
Whether you’re doing green woodworking or fine furniture making, these tools are sure to become some of the most prized in your shop.
