An Axe


The Axe is one of the oldest examples of a tool still in use in the thirty-first century. Generally wielded two-handed, the axe can be used for anything from chopping wood to chopping off a limb, and can be found on nearly every human-occupied world, whether constructed from bone and wood or high-strength plastics and steel. While not commonly used as a weapon of war, the axe's weight and design gives it superior armor penetration compared to other archaic weapons, though this also makes it equally clumsy to use.[1]
