Note the picture of the five axes on the right hand side of the LOTR Wikia page for Gimli. Those are the five axe props that Gimli carried throughout the movie: A walking axe, a broad-/bearded-/battle- axe, two throwing axes (each matches one of the bigger axes), plus Balin's Axe from Moria. (Yes, I know Balin didn't have a axe in the movie, as I said before; he may get it in a future movie or he got it between the two series). The axe that he breaks on the One Ring may not even be his axe (watch the scene again) but I am not counting it as one of his five axes. If you want to count it, then there are six axes.

Not only do others agree, I have watched the films recently and carefully to verify the Balin's Axe theory. Also, play the Moria level on the handheld version of LEGO LOTR. This supports the theory also.

I did my research before I posted here. Here are three links where others have come to the same conclusion:
