Roman axe in an ancient Roman relief in Brescia, Italy

An axe (sometimes ax in American English; see spelling differences) is an implement that has been used for millennia to shape, split and cut wood, to harvest timber, as a weapon, and as a ceremonial or heraldic symbol. The axe has many forms and specialised uses but generally consists of an axe head with a handle, or helve.

Quotes[edit]

  • The woodman’s axe lies free,
    And the reaper’s work is done.
