This Scottish Lochaber Axe is a polearm with an unsharpened cleaver-like head that is forged from high carbon steel; it is mounted onto a hardwood haft and screwed into place to further secure it to the haft.
the Lochaber Axe is a brutal Scottish polearm with a wide axe-like head designed to cleave and hack apart a target to ferocious effect. The head swiftly terminates into a tapered tip well-suited for decisively thrusting into the target. Lochaber axes are characterized by their integrated hook and there is some debate as to whether the hook was used to dismount cavalrymen or was simply used to conveniently hang them on an armory wall. This example used in this replica is built robustly enough that it could function as an anti-cavalry tool.
