Axes are the most versatile weapon type in Valheim. They are both a tool and a weapon, used for woodcutting and combat. There are also two-handed variants that can be crafted starting in the Iron Age.

One-handed (1H) variants can be used with a Shield. This was the most popular combination during the Viking era of history. The 1H axe and shield combo offers a strong balance of offensive and defensive capabilities.
