The axe's head looks like old but its handle isn't to me.
Get me an expert on this axe!

Hello,

If this site is correct, it is a German WWI pioneer trench axe.

This may help (unfortunately, you have to sign p for the website to see the images, so I don't know if it's the same thing.)

Jeroen got it right. It is a German WWI pioneer trench axe. I dont know enough about them to tell you if its an earlier one or not. I think the earliest versions had brass plates on the sides, but dont quote me on that.

I believe Austrian rather German . WWI Pioneer axe it is. I have just about the same, but mine is forged without seam. It can be die-forged, handle looks ok.
