I recently completed this pair of bowl adzes. Mild steel bodies with forge-welded high-carbon edges. One has a low layer 1080/15n20 pattern-welded edge and a moradillo handle. The other has an old file as the edge and an apple handle. Finished with Tried & True Varnish Oil.

The moradillo one is headed to the Richard Arnold Charity Auction in the UK as a donation. I'm keeping the other.

I like them!  Nicely ground surfaces.  I might suggest a bit more curve along the length of the heads on future models.  It seems like these might drag a bit through the curve of most bowls.
