The crystal axe is an item used in Woodcutting. It requires 71 Woodcutting and Song of the Elves to create and use, with 50 Agility and 70 Attack required to wield it. It gives the player a 15% increase in efficiency chopping logs over the rune axe, surpassing the 10% increase of the dragon axe. This makes the crystal axe approximately 4.5% faster than the dragon axe.

To personally craft a crystal axe, the player must have 76 Smithing and 76 Crafting to sing 120 crystal shards, a crystal tool seed, and a dragon axe together. If the player does not meet the Smithing and Crafting requirements, they can have Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 60 crystal shards, for a total of 180. You can boost your stats to meet the crafting requirements.

The axe starts off at 10,000 charges and degrades like all crystal equipment. The maximum charges that can be stored is 20,000. One charge is depleted for each item that is chopped using the tool. To recharge the axe, the player must load in crystal shards (this can be done before it is inactive as well). Dismantling a crystal tool will return the dragon equivalent and crystal tool seed to the player and doing so will lose all crystal shard charges that were previously loaded.

A dangerous death in PvP causes the crystal tools to revert to their dragon equivalents, which will be then dropped for the killer. All crystal shards will be lost should this happen.

The crystal axe has a special attack, Lumber Up, that provides a visible +3 boost to Woodcutting. This consumes 100% of the player's special attack energy, though it cannot be used without the 70 Attack required to wield the axe.
