Hi Don, Looks good from here. Did you include any tempering for the blade? You should also date the blade, so that future antique tool collectors will know when you created it. ;)
Now I’m waiting to see what your first project will be with your new Adz.

The tempering process I used is in the blog.

I’ll be finishing that bowl eventually.
