The Battle Axe is a melee weapon. It is an axe designed specifically for combat. It is different from the War Axe, the Heavy Handaxe, and the Gredita Axe.
The Battle Axe described here is a large two-handed weapon usually made out of metal or wood. It usually has a point on the top for stabbing, but this is mainly just for show as most of the practicality of this weapon comes from using the head. While it may seem like an ancient weapon from a bygone era, this weapon can still be seen in modern times in the hands of purists of the old days or just those who like getting up close and personal.
