Default Help: Hatchet

Hello all,
apologies re incessant questions. The following was a hatchet that was featured with my new Kalinga/Tinguian axe in the same auction. The auction appeared to be mainly about the axe/hatchet pictured below. I have no idea what this is. The auction description read "The art carved hatchet shows wear and patina consistant with an aged tool" - "Antique Head Hunter Hatchets from the South Pacific. The more decorative one is probably authentic native made."
Any help in identifying would be much appreciated.
thanks
