axes like these were used to cut down trees, build houses, and more things. they can be made out of many different things, these ones look like they could be made out of iron and wood.

this is the axe that cut down the magical city of Goldenea. It was used to fight off the evil monster, Gruffinu. It was also made from a mystical material and carved to resemble a goddess.

These axe heads may have been used for buiding homes and cutting firewood in the early years of Immigration of Europeaners, but later could have been used in wars between the Native Americans and other tribes or White people.

I'm going to take a shot at it, and say that these axes were used to either cut down wood to use for fires at night to stay warm and cook the meat, and maybe even used to skin the animals or fend off intruders?

I think the pencil in the pic is probably not supposed to be there. The ax heads are the coolest things in there. The shape and the color are the coolest.

The pencil is there to give you an idea of how big the axe heads are.
