The Curved One-Handed Adze by Henry Taylor is similar to the Gutter Adze but intended for one handed use. This curved adze is hand forged out of the highest quality Sheffield steel by Henry Taylor in England, one of the oldest British woodworking tool companies with a toolmaking tradition dating back to 1834. The overall length of the blade is 7" with a curved cutting edge measuring 2 1/4" across. The length of the blade also has a slightly curved shape from the eye to the cutting edge to match the natural arc resulting from its accompanying 12" long Ash handle. The Curved Adze is intended for one handed use and removes wood at a fantastic rate. It is ideal for smaller shaping and trimming jobs where a greater degree of control is needed. Although it comes machine sharpened, we recommend a final hone for optimal performance. Made in England. Click here for the full range of our Adze
