You give them to the skeleton blacksmith in the catacombs.
I upgraded my gargoyle axe from the first boss to a fire axe at the skeleton blacksmith in the Catacombs.
There are several switches you have to push to get access to each area. It's either the last or second to last switch you need to run back to, it's at the bottom of one of those stone spiral staircases inside. An alcove on the right has the switch, then you'd normally run back upstairs to the previous area. If you keep going down it looks like the stairs dead-end into a fall, but if you step off this ledge, you'll get to a secret area with the blacksmith.
I think that's right, I'm going off memory. Upgrading to a fire gargoyle axe made life a lot easier for me.
in the catacombs, when you get to a spiral staircase/ledge going down and abruptly ending in a dark drop, keep walking counterclockwise and you'll land on a ledge, then another, then you'll get to the smith through a hole in the ground.
