Patok
Information:
  • Patok – with decorative “okir” or carving; an adze; an all around boat builder’s tool. An adze or adz (pronounced /ćdz/) is a tool used for smoothing rough-cut wood in hand woodworking. Generally, the user stands astride a board or log and swings the adze downwards towards their feet, chipping off pieces of wood, moving backwards as they go and leaving a relatively smooth surface behind. Adzes are most often used for squaring up logs, or for hollowing out timber.
  • Patok - the blade of the patok.
