Small Straight Adze

Small Straight Adze is a very old Scandinavian axe design.  It is perhaps best described as a chisel with a handle.  The straight adze has a wide range of applications — it can be used to shape beams & purlins, to square-off logs & planks, to create smooth surfaces and to shape/form ribs in boats.  The short handle makes it easier for the user to work closer to the log or block of wood.
