There is more offset than I am used to but it seems to be built right into the helve of the axe head
Yes, the angles are largely determined at the forge. My handle takes its own way rather than following on from the lines of the axe head itself.
For me it would take some getting used to, to master its use

One thing that I do think is unique is the square aperture where the handle exits the axe head

It is fairly angular there which is what I like because it simplifies fitting the handle. Often on the outside side of such sockets there is even a ridge along its length which gives a tangible representation of the axe handle axis.
thanks for posting
