The leaf-bladed battleaxe is one of three melee weapons used to harm turoths and kurasks, the others being the leaf-bladed spear and sword. When fighting these monsters with the battleaxe, it will deal 17.5% more damage.
The axe requires an Attack level of 65 and a Slayer level of 55 to wield. It is dropped by kurasks, located in the Fremennik Slayer Dungeon and the Iorwerth Dungeon.
The leaf-bladed battleaxe has the highest strength bonus out of all one-handed melee weaponry, exceeding the dragon battleaxe, having a higher slash and crush bonus than its dragon counterpart. In addition, unlike standard battleaxes, the leaf-bladed battleaxe exhibits a faster attack speed of 5, instead of the usual 6, resulting in significantly more damage per second.

- The attack animation of the battleaxe reuses the one that the various barbarian spirits found in the Ancient Cavern use (such as Angry barbarian spirit).
- Due to player complaints of the leaf-bladed sword inflicting more damage-per-second than the battleaxe, its passive damage bonus was added in an update on 30 November 2017. The same update saw its slash accuracy increased from 50 to 72.
