Axes are used for woodcutting. Many tools let you cut down trees, but only axes can chop trees into logs.
Axes are considered weapons. This means you cannot increase your skill beyond 20 by cutting trees. Only the hatchet will increase above 20. The hatchet is also a blacksmithing item, unlike the other axes.
The normal axes are:
- Small axe
- Huge axe
There are also some special axes:
- Small axe (former starter item, burns, non-improvable)
- Hatchet (new starter item, burns, non-improvable)
- Axe (former trinket item, burns)
