Throwing axes can be stacked to a maximum of 10, keep in mind that a stack of 10 throwing axes has a weight of 50 lbs. This is also a one-handed weapon, so it can be used in combination with shield.

This weapon are seldom used by opponents, which means stores are more depending sources, they're sold at most weapon stores in all campaigns.

In BGII, BG:EE and BGII:EE it can be switched to use as a melee weapon.

In-game descriptionEdit

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.


  • In BG:EE while the Throwing Axe is wielded in melee, it does slashing damage and does not break, despite the iron crisis
  • It is more profitable to split them before selling and selling them one by one since they always sell for at least 1 Goldpieces each. Due to their low initial price, it may also be profitable to buy them off merchants, split and sell for a profit.
