Hans Karlsson ADZE 50mm is a premium, rare, short handled curved adze. Hand-forged in very small numbers.
An adze used mainly for the hollowing of bowls, troughs and chair bottoms.
From fabled Swedish tool makers Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB. In Sweden they call this a Tjackelyxa Kort Skaft
The cutting edge on this adze is round, without the flat area in the middle as on the Hans Karlsson Adze 60mm.
An adze of undoubted quality, where great attention has been paid to how tools like this work, beautifully detailed and finished.
The Karlsson’s have an absolute understanding of what wood craftsmen want and need from a tool.
Subtle hammer marks on the head, confirm this as a hand-forged tool.
