My bet would be on votive offerings.

Socket axes are so strange looking... but it cut the cost in materials probably ?

I’m impressed a newspaper journalist put forth an economic possibility for the weapons’ abandonment— it strikes me as the most likely explanation.

I doubt that people would throw away bronze. They used it for many things other than just weapons. I'd expect it to be cached and then melted down and reformed, as needed.

That was my first thought but like Blizno said so many other items were made of bronze, another point is the transitional period i bet it was decades.
