Default Historicism german pole axe /hammer

Hello dear members,
I have this pole axe hammer head .
It was sold as an historicism piece, I don't think it's antique but I wanted to show it to the forum specialists :
The blade of the axe has been changed and fixed with melted? nails ? One fixation side part of the original axe is now missing.
Strange for me to be 19th historicism deco-revival piece.
Maybe a real antique popular-peasant piece ?
Maybe just a transformed 20th meat hammer/axe in some medieval funny item ??
There is a shaft but it don't seems so old,
The piece is 30cm high and 20cm large.
It comes from a swiss militar arsenal .
