Re: Adze handle ()

Derek, what you see as a bevel in the picture is actually the polish on the inside. The adze is beveled on the outside.
As to the shape, I'm not sure but it just feels right in my hand. I like the knob on the bottom somewhat large because my grip isn't all that strong with arthritis. I use an inverted table similar to Curtis Buchanan's and it is a breeze to rough out a pine seat this way with this tool.
