the axe is a heavy weapon its about mid range. most of the lower districts use them sense they are strong and have more training (1-4). its a bash/blunt weapon made to cut your oppenent in half or simple bash there skull in while ripping it to sherds. i would perfer not to use the axe im more of a fast weapon user my self but this is for more of the no mercy one shotters that dont like anything. overall it is a slow but very powerful weapon.
