This is an old adze. My dad says they were used to hew logs such as for a log cabin. I'm sure t were other purposes for this tool also. If you really want to build a house the hard way I guess you need one of these. I prefer hanging it on the wall and proudly Showing My Adze. If you are unlucky enough to misplace this tool, that's right you have Lost Your Adze. Shipping and Handling $10.00. Thank you for looking at my auction.
