Rune axe head detail.png

The rune axe head is an unobtainable item that was originally used in the axe handle random event. The axe head would become detached from the player's axe while Woodcutting. To fix their axe, players had to collect the axe head off the ground and reattach it to the Axe handle.

A similar event used to happen to players while Mining, but with a pickaxe head and pickaxe handle.

Axe heads were removed in an update on 17 July 2007, prior to the release of Old School RuneScape, so have never been obtainable.
