Hey Azur, very cool story about the tool! Typically, an adze is sharpened only on the inside edge (the one facing the handle). Regarding the head spinning on the handle, you might have better luck using a piece of wood without a split up there. You want to have some taper on the head so you can get a nice tight fit.
From what little I know, the adze is used to cut hollow stuff out of timbers, like a wooden canoe, or the inside curve of a ship, things like that. So it's more of a shaving tool, while an axe is more for taking chunks out.

I hope that helps!
