The axe has been used to shape, split and cut wood since prehistoric times. However, it has been also used as a weapon. Battle axes are classified as cutting weapons. Each ax is composed of a shaft / helve and a metal head. Halberd developed from the axe by lengthening of the helve into the pole.
The category Axes contains replicas of battle axes that are inspired by axes from the ancient and recent times. Some of them are even made exactly after historical originals.
