Anything's possible, my new one's haft looks like there is a deliberately short wider undercut section not seen on the ones with the long conical finials. Kind of like a checker nailed to a narrower cylinder. (Might even be 2 part like that in reality, will know on arrival)
The heads are in any case, all set from the butt up into a slight increasing taper at the top, like a tomahawk, rather than top down like a western axe.
