An axe is a type of cutting tool that can be used as both a weapon and a slicing apparatus. Nearly Headless Nick was executed with a blunt axe, and in the story Babbitty Rabbitty and her Cackling Stump, the Captain of the Brigade of Witch-Hunters cut down the tree that was thought to be Babbity with an axe. It was also implied that Buckbeak was to be executed with an axe. A heavy blood-stained axe could be found in the Room of Requirement.
Behind the scenes
- In the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban the Ministry executioner is shown very blatantly sharpening his axe in preparation for Buckbeak's execution.
