Default Help with Persian Tabar Saddle Axe 19th Century

Hello fellow collectors,

I just acquired this interesting Tabar yesterday from a local antique shop I normally collect European edge weapons but I like this piece and found it interesting so I couldn't leave the shop without it :-) I am unsure if it is Persian late 18th Century / 19th Century? There is Arabic/Persian text etched or engraved on the Axe head but I have no idea what it may translate to if any one out there could help me with a little info on this piece. The axe head blade is a bit different that the others I have seen so am a bit confused as to it's origin.The axe is 68cm long or 26 3/4 inches The steel shaft is also octagon like a gun barrel.
