This very shallow carving adze is used to trim off the crests left by the bowl adze to create a subtly textured finish that can either be left as a final surface straight from the tool or as a labour saving step on the way to a fully sanded and polished finish.
For very shallow hollows like the seats of chairs and stools it can manage the whole job.
Beautifully handmade from scratch in the Petrograd tool factory St Petersburg, Russia.
