For sale: copper age axe-adze reproduction


Recommended Posts

This is a copper age reproduction of a copper axe-adze, typical for the copper age of eastern Europe. The original is from Bozuriste, Bulgaria, and dates to around 3500-3000BC. It is cast in pure copper, just like the originals. Edges are hardened by hammering (though still pretty soft due to being copper). It's also my first pure copper casting of such a size. It's 26cm long, and it weighs 1.2kg. I've left some of the roughness on, such as around the socket, as well as keeping the casting seems visible, keeping it as close to the looks of the originals as possible. Price as is 200 euro OBO, hafting is extra.
