An Axe is a specialized version of utility axe used as a primitive close combat weapon.[1]


The axe sports a brutal blade, used both as a tool and weapon. While it generally does not have the reach of a sword and lacks its ability to parry away blows, a strike from an axe will generally create a more lethal effect when it lands, ripping apart flesh and shattering bone with ease.[1][2] Axes are usually found on feudal or Feral worlds, but many heretics also value their simplicity and brutality.[3]
