    Just bought this 71 cm long solid bronze chinese axe, has anyone ever seen anything like it? the patination is artificial but a very cool piece. Love to hear your opinions. 11.png 13.png 12.png

    All of my D&D-loving cousins would want that to sit in a corner and look cool. It weighs enough to swing through an engine block, provided you can lift the thing!

    Cheap junk, or just made to hang on a wall and look cool for the gamer crowd? If it weighed a ton it would pull the hooks out of wallboard. A hollow decorator piece is easier to display.
