Hand adze, perhaps used by coopers to strip bark off trees. One of a number of items (eg ABDUA 15895 to 15915) donated by Mrs Argo of Aberdeen, some of which were used on the farm of Darnabo, near Fyvie, Aberdeenshire. Most of the items date to the early 20th century, though some objects may be even older. Mrs Argo left the Darnabo farm c. 1970, and had previously been at New Deer.
