Trivia Edit

  • In real life, Axes have various purposes. Generally, they serve as tools for wood cutting and splitting, and harvesting lumber. They are also served as ceremonial/heraldic symbols and as weapons.
    • Double-Bit Axes served as tools for cutting wood. It's notable for having two bladed bits on the head; this makes it ideal for switching to the other bit when one bit is dull from the work.
    • Firefighter Axes (known as the Fireman's Axe in-game) are used by firefighters during emergencies such as breaking down doors and windows. It's recognizable for it's helpful pick-bladed point on the head.
    • Felling Axes are the more-common axe used in felling; cutting down trees across.
    • Hewing Axes are used for hewing; converting tree logs into lumber with more of less flat surfaces.
    • Splitting Axes are served for wood splitting along the tree's grain, and have a more wedged appearance which causes to rend the wood's fibres apart without having to cut through them.
  • In real life, Pickaxes are tools commonly used for mining, but also for agriculture. It's recognizable for it's head; one side having a sharp point and the other a flat chiselled point. The sharp point is used for breaking rocky surfaces while the chiselled side is used for cutting through roots.
  • The Felling axe in-game is actually a Broad Axe despite its name.
  • The Splitting Axe in-game appears more akin to an actual Felling Axe than a splitting axe.
  • A glitch occurs when using a special variant of Axe such as the Remarkable Heavy Fireman's Axe, the axe handle will revert to the default wooden handle instead of its customized handle.
