The blade of this dance ax is a work of 'iron art'. The smith curved the blade forward into a half circle, and then wiggled it upwards into a miniature spear. Leather covers the section where the blade enters the ax. This weapon is great from cutting wood to a nice tool to use in the battle. One quick blow or a stab with the spear and you will have one heck of a wound.
