Sure, from my collection: 1st one looks exactly the same (in working condition), check the 2nd photo to see its cross-section.
2nd axe (3rd photo) I sold recently. I had more in the past.

To me it looks exactly like a 19th century French trade axe, found in damp ground.

Reading this interesting thread I'm seriously doubting this is actually a cannon.
A stone soft enough to be drilled with a simple bow drill and such a small diameter hole, would likely be prone to...

Punjab has some area in modern Afghanistan. The blade is actually slightly wider than common Afghani axes, but the overall appearance is alike, including the back strap.

I see no problem - not an auction, the seller is active here and a personal friend. If you check the description you'll see he noted the two speculations (we even discussed it today :D ).

What do you think about this item here: http://www.oriental-arms.co.il/item.php?id=5683

Personally, I think it is much too elaborated to be ammunition, and not too heavy to be thrown by hand.

Have seen one or two axes in the past, I'm afraid it's not European at all, but from north-west India (Sind), as evident from the polygonal socket and decoration. Thin blade means it IS a combat axe.

The best tale-tellers are the guard finials and pommel: 1. aside being nice to the eye, they simply will not stand the rigors of war and brake.
2. this pommel type is just wrong to that kind of...

It appears to be a 20th century Russian domestic meat axe. Check the place where the blade gets suddenly thick - it was common to make those from two separate pieces: flat blade inserted into a...

This is the last true boarding axe issued to the Royal Navy. I have an identical axe, unmarked and probably older due to overall even pitting, and a ship's serial number marked in a bronze tag...

Nice legit model, we call this type of handle "architectural style" because of the middle swelling.
It is quite late, but not recent. I'd say 1950's-60s. Still more horn parts than plastic. BTW the...

Very true and even later, to ~1900. Percussion guns were in use until WWII.

American presentation knives can be expensive, sometimes very expensive. This knife looks somewhat like a small Chinese dao, dressed up in western style.

Just a small correction referring the fokos - technically it is a Polish ciupaga, and a very distinctive one, though it seems rather recent.
