An axe (also ax or battle axe) was a type of melee weapon of ancient design.
The axe could be used as a tool, a melee weapon, or a thrown weapon. Some axes were modernized by being constructed of more advanced materials; these were commonly found in explorers' shops. An advanced version of the axe was the vibro-ax. The axe had the advantage of being legal nearly everywhere because no one thought to outlaw such a simple tool. Medium-sized, one-handed axes were crafted so that they could be used effectively as a thrown weapon.
Fringers found this blade very useful in the wilds of untamed planets. The axe was also a main weapon of the Gamorreans, the porcine humanoids from the lush jungle Outer Rim planet of Gamorr. Gamorreans also designed their own larger special axes called Arg'garoks.
