The hand axe or throwing axe is also known as a hatchet. The axe blade has a sharp steel tip counterbalanced by a pointed fluke. The short handle has a point on the bottom, and the head may have a spike on the top. This throwing axe is balanced and enchanted, making it more accurate and damaging. Since the throwing axe is designed differently than a normal axe, it is less effective as a melee weapon.
