The adze is moving toward history. I see very few climbers in the mountians with technical tools that have an adze on them. It really doesnt make the much sence anymore. If you want an adze carry your mountaineering axe, but on a tech tool, come on. Put a hammer on both of your tools, you'll use both hammers and you will gain a level of safety.
Use it to hit a pin. Or instead of an adze if you are worried about a lobotomy.
...roger that on the lobotomoy thing...
