Description:

"From iron and wood was created an axe. Nothing special, just a weapon that will serve as a good instrument in a battle. Bandits would prefer this more than a club or a wooden plank, to strike with fury."

Feel free to comment, whenever you can, to give ideas, as it would help to improve the icon and make as it should be.

Enjoy!

The glow around the axe is very distracting, i wouldn't use the glow or maybe make it less noticeable. The wooden texture on the handle doesn't look like wood, it needs more curved lines creating a wooden texture. Here are some examples of axes too get some ideas from.

Lastly, the blade area were it is suppose to be sharp doesn't look sharp at all, in the photos given it shows a white/grey colors where the blades sharp area is, yours is all over black. Take away the black area and add some white/grey colors towards it, and possibly make the blade area not so square, make it have some curves.

Thank you very much for your comment! I have realized that icon was not so good and remade it.

Really nice update !! One thing I see is that it looks flat too me , around the wooden handle part, make it seem not so flat by adding shading towards the right side of that wooden part and on the other make it the lighter side, where the light is hitting it. Then ill think about approving this.
 
It's a good suggestion, as I considered it as a important element for doing the update. Thanks, PrinceYaser.
You're welcome! But the handle still looks smooth to me, it's not rounded looking. Look at this areas I specified:

In number 1, put black colors in the form of Overlay layer. In number 2, put a bit white color also in the form of Overlay layer. Then, it would be rounded looking like this:
