The Kehletai were a minor Xenos race encountered by the Imperium during the Great Crusade. They were eventually wiped out in a campaign known as the Kraal Compliance.[1]

The Kehletai made monomolecular-edged close-combat weapons that were some of the keenest blades ever encountered in the galaxy. One example of these, known as a "Friction Axe", was broader than a Fenrisian battle axe, and joined the private armoury collection of the Ultramarines Primarch, Roboute Guilliman. During the Battle of Calth, this axe was used to great effect by Sergeant Aeonid Thiel, and by Chapter Master Marius Gage, against the daemons overrunning the flagship Macragge's Honour. Gage, who had lost an arm to the daemons before being rescued by Thiel, noted that the axe, despite its massive size, was light enough to be wielded one-handed.[1]
