pfeil is undoubtedly the finest carving tool on the market, second-to-none in terms of manufacturing quality and durability. The Curved Head Adze is perfect for woodworking projects such as large carvings or timber framing projects. Curved head blade is about 2-1/2" across, with a curve that approximates a #9 sweep carving tool profile. Artists and sculptors use various sizes of adzes for making totem poles, masks and bowls.

Not up to Pfeil standards if you ask me
I took my first purchase back for an exchange. The blade had a couple "thin" spots where it had been ground at the factory. I was afraid these "thin" spots might chip out during use so, I took it back to Woodcraft and they happily exchanged it. I was not particularly impressed with the sharpness of this tool. It is going to take a fair amount of "tuning" to get the edge on this tool ready to use. I have a Pfeil woodcarving knife that I really like. Razor sharp and holds an edge a long time! I think Pfeil's standards on this adze need a second quality control look.
Very good for bowls looks big and bulky but works great.
