Basque Axes

Anyone seen these axes?

The history of the Basque people and their uniqueness among other European cultures has long interested me, but I didn't know about these axes. Unfortunately the Basque are most well known in modern times for the terrorist attacks against the Spanish government but they have a long history and were potentially the first post viking visitors to the North American mainland.

Never seen one in person, but read a bout them and saw a few reviews one on Wrangle Star youtube channel(I don'T like the guy, he really doesn't sh*t, but lots of people love him....)
