ax is askire

askire = ax (noun) (some things Google found for "askire": a rare to unusual term; user names; a gaming character name; a rare last name; bad OCR of old text documents; similar Askira is the name of places in Greece and Nigeria)

Word derivation for "ax" :
Basque = aizkora, Finnish = kirves
Miresua = askire

I found the plural of ax, axes, once in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
"...You see the earth takes twenty-four hours to turn round on its axis--"

"Talking of axes," said the Duchess, "chop off her head!"

Alice glanced rather anxiously at the cook...
