For other uses, see Axe (disambiguation).

An ax or axe was a melee weapon that consisted of a heavy edged head fixed to a handle.[1] Some axes had two blades.[3] Although regular axes were intimidating weapons in themselves, their lethality and cutting ability could be increased by the addition of a vibration generator, which produced a variant known as a vibro-ax.[4]

During the time of the First Order, stormtroopers who were assigned the duty of serving as executioner troopers used the laser ax for capital punishment via beheading.[5]
