I can’t speak for axe work personally but I can for adze work and I’m sure the answer is the same. As mentioned above, loosen up. An adze cut can be almost as fine as a plane cut but it must be done with a relaxed grip. Tense muscles can’t give the fine control and will also eventually cramp. Golf is a good comparison. You can’t get it done with a death grip.
