Skins applicable


  • It is the lightest of four varieties of axe and as such will not do much damage in combat, although it is rather fast.
  • Can be used to chop trees/bushes to skill the weapon up to 20.
  • The small axe is primarily a weapon. Much like the small maul and short sword, it sacrifices damage for increased accuracy, speed, and parry rate. The standard relationship between swords, mauls, and axes suggests that small axes most likely do more damage than short swords and small mauls, but perhaps parries less than both.
