Encyclopedia of historical weapons - Adze

The adze was a traditional carpenter’s tool with a long thin axe-like blade attached at a right angle to the handle; they were used for cutting grooves. The Maori of New Zealand used adzes (called a toki) as war weapons. Theirs were carved of bone or jade, usually very elaborately, and lashed to a wooden handle.
