Adze Blade - 84mm

$273.00

Description

One of the more unique tools used in Japanese carpentry is the chouna (or adze), used by woodwork artisans to predominately reduce and shape the face of wooden sections. to create a beautiful scaly, textured surface.

You often hear woodworkers and carpenters talking about tools becoming an extension of their body, but more than other tools, the Adze really embodies that statement. They can be intimidating tools in the beginning, but like any hand tool it just takes practice.

The blade of the Japanese Adze will need to be mounted at 90 degrees onto a curved wooden handle (not included - blade only sold). The ground primary bevel is on the back face and is honed to a very fine edge. The curved handle shape helps the Adze to perform progressive strikes onto the wood.

Adze swinging is a mechanical motion that has to be repeated with only minimal correction. Once you develop a sense of control and fluidity with the tool.
