Battle Axe

Primary Material: Wood, Steel An axe designed for cutting people as opposed to trees. Contrary to mythology, battle axes were relatively small and light like every other military weapon, and didn’t have giant three-foot wide, 10 kilo blades like in a Frank Frazetta* painting. Axes used for war or hunting were generally lighter and slimmer than axes used to fell trees, rather than the other way around. The typical battle axe was also a relatively small single-handed weapon (though there were two-handed axes, see Great Axe and Sparth Axe). Nevertheless, the battle axe was brutal, it could slice off limbs, split heads or hack shields to pieces with relative ease, and cut through shields or light armor without problems.
