Axes, also referred to as hatchets, are a weapon and a tool necessary for Woodcutting. It is classified as a melee weapon, available in all varieties of metal, although its power and speed are less favourable than most others. Alternatively, they can be used to slash webs.

Higher-level axes have a greater chance of obtaining logs from a tree and thus are generally faster to woodcut with. However, certain low-level trees become attainable at maximum speed at higher woodcutting levels, even with lower-level axes.

Trivia

  • Broken axes, before being removed after an update, were able to be wielded. But once unequipped, they could no longer be equipped by the player. They possessed the same bonuses as their unbroken counterparts.
