There are other African axe types which also have a...

Two more African Axes for comment

Just received these 2 which I believe are from Tanzania and likely the Nyamwezi people.
They are very similar but slightly different carving on the hafts.
All comments welcome.

Not Algerian IMHO. The stock shape is all wrong. More like a Spanish style stock, and the lock engraving does not look North African either.
Nice piece either way.
