The battleaxe is a simple axe head mounted on a wooden or metal haft about 2.5 to 3 feet (75 to 90cm) long. They can be ornate or plain and the blade may be slightly curved to almost round. The back side of the axe head may have a short spike or blade and the end of the haft may have a spike also. Some models come with belt hooks on the side of the head. For mounted warriors, a version called the horseman's axe is slightly shorter than the infantry version and is equipped with a leather strap for swinging. The average battleaxe costs 10gp and weighs 6lbs (2.7kg).
