Wednesday Word: Adz

Adz - an axe-like tool, for dressing timbers roughly, with a curved, chisel-like steel head that is mounted at a right angle to the handle.

Chances are you have see an adz but didn't realize it - it looks like the offspring of a hammer and an axe. It's a killer word to use in Scrabble when you can't make za!
