I have one interesting axe in my collection, i bought it some years ago together with some other edged arms from a very important family in Portugal, their house had 400 years of history....
It's interesting because the axe is a bardiche, this kind of axe was used by the turkish in the otoman empire, it's interesting how this arm ended up in Portugal, i suspect it maybe brought has a war trophy.
Now i share the axe with you all with the hope to know more about it, the questions i have made do myself are:
1) How old is it ?
2) Why the material (iron) has that colour ?
