Adze

References of the adze from this time period are obscure enough that I had to develop my design from images of the tool used by other regions as well. Based on the images and measurements supplied by the research-team the adze appears to be a cane shaped tool of an average 26.7 cm in length, made of the usual combination of materials that include wood, stone and wrappings. 

I approached my modelling of this object to suggest it may have been constructed from the V section a single tree branch, cut short on one side with enough space between to allow for the insertion of a stone blade to be wedged between the split and then attached in place with wrappings and glue.
