Chinese Ge Dagger Axe
Just aquired this from an auction here in the UK, It's a chinese warring states bronze age pole arm weapon. Comes from an old collection estate sale, so with luck not a recent copy.
Hopefully will clean up the verdegris w/o destroying the patina & I'll find it in good enough condition to mount it on a pole as it would have been. Don't recall seeing many of these here, if any. they were the pimary chinese weapon for a few centuries. Later versions incorporated a spear point to the pole and eventually to the Ge portion as one unit.
