A'ddice. n.s. [for which we corruptly speak and write adz, from aꝺꞅ, Sax. an axe.]
The addice hath its blade made thin and somewhat arching. As the axe hath its edge parallel to its handle, so the addice hath its edge athwart the handle, and is ground to a basil on its inside to its outer edge. Moxon's Mechanical Exercises.
