Old tools, Anchor, Heart and Cross Axehead:
On the way to Konstanz I passed by a barnsale/fleamarket and for a couple of bucks I bought this bag of old tools. Needless to say I stored it away and picked it up on the way back. Today when I started to clean the axeheads I discovered this great hallmark of a cross, a heart and an anchor.

The meaning I found is:
The cross and anchor together were first used in Christian catacombs to represent hope based on the belief in Jesus Christ. The heart was added later to represent charity. The three symbols together represent the Christian tenants of faith, hope, and charity.

I really like this special axehead and now I have to find a well fitting piece of wood for it.
