Default 3 PNG Weapons & a possible 4th?

I was lucky enough to acquire these weapons recently. One is a Mendi Fighting Axe(these were banned in PNG in 1968), The maces I believe are from the Kamoro group or the Eastern Highlands based on the least common method of securing the star mace head to the shaft. The stone axe is a mystery to me and I can not find anything similar. The heavy, relatively sharp axe head with a medial ridge is securely fastened to a stout 31" shaft which appears to be coated with some type of pitch, etc. and one can see where the covering is cracked. It is a formidable weapon.
Any help in its identification would be helpful.
