A dwarven waraxe is an exotic one-handed (or martial two-handed) melee weapon.


The dwarven waraxe is a single-bladed axe larger and heavier than a battleaxe but less so than the double-bladed greataxe. An average dwarven waraxe costs 30gp and weighs 8lbs (3.6kg).[1]


It requires special training to use a dwarven waraxe one-handed and is therefore considered exotic. It may be used with two hands by a medium-sized creature as a martial weapon. A dwarf treats this axe as a martial weapon even when using it one-handed.[1]
