Through the course of human history, common objects have been pressed into service as weapons. Besides axes designed for combat, some axes were designed to be both tools and weapons. Throwing axes were a specialty battle axe. As axes were quicker and cheaper to produce than swords they were used extensively.
Battle axes generally weigh less than modern splitting axes because they were designed to cut flesh rather than wood. The lighter weapons were much quicker when engaged in combat.
