It seems that it is difficult to acquire a good adze these days. I’m not looking, but I have been getting emails seeking advice on what to do about it. These folks wish to carve bowls, and are willing to pay for a good adze, but they simply aren’t available. It seems that the demand has outpaced the supply. Think about that; in 2015 the demand for hand forged bowl adzes has outpaced the rate at which the makers can produce them! That is both somewhat amazing and quite encouraging.
