A contained energy axe was a type of laser ax that, until activated, could be quickly mistaken for a standard vibro-ax. The contained energy axe used a diatium power cell that when activated, it made a magnetically contained energy blade along the edge of the ax head, rather than relying on ultrasonic vibrations for its cutting power.[1]

While the ax relied on raw strength to inflict substantial damage, the upgrade of a centimeter of plasma along its cutting edge allowed the axe to slice through most materials easily.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The contained energy axe was first mentioned in the 2018 Fantasy Flight Games roleplaying sourcebook Knights of Fate.[1]
