Black axe detail.png

A black axe is an item mostly used in the Woodcutting skill. Using this axe requires level 11 Woodcutting. Level 10 Attack is required to equip it. As with all axes, carrying it in your inventory along with the necessary Woodcutting level will work.

The success rate for chopping a log is approximately 225% that of the bronze axe, or 12.5% better than a steel axe.

As with all black equipment and white equipment, the black axe cannot be made from raw materials using the Smithing skill.
