I think this is Anatolian axe. Maybe more part of folk costume (in former times)than battle axe ...

Hi
This looks to be a cast piece rather than forged
Are there seams in the inside of the socket
Regards
Ken

Thank you, from inside maybe realy looks to be from cast iron. It came to me in very heavy rusted condition.
