Adze Specific Links

Demand for bowl adzes has grown immensely over the last several years, and there have been new makers beyond what I have kept up with. From what I can see — and from what I have heard from others with direct experience — many are very good. I’ll include some links to some makers and suppliers below, not as an endorsement necessarily, but rather just as some helpful possibilities as folks explore and search for adzes.
