The axe (known as a hatchet in Runescape Classic) is the tool necessary for Woodcutting. It is classified as a melee weapon, available in all varieties of metal, although its power and speed are less favourable than some other weapons. Axes can also be used to slash webs. All axes available to free players can be smithed.
