ACU Lochaber axe

Lochaber axe

The Lochaber axe is a type of heavy axe designed as an anti-cavalry polearm for infantry.


Unlike other polearms with single-edged blades such the fauchard, the blade of a Lochaber axe is bound on one side of a long shaft at the end rather than mounted directly on top of it. In this manner of placement, it is more similar to that of a voulge. The broad, heavy, curved axe blade was effective at cutting enemy horses from underneath their riders, and the weapon was developed primarily for anti-cavalry infantry use. One design of the Lochaber axe, found in Paris during the French Revolution bore a shaft that curved backwards from the blade at the top end.[1]


During the French Revolution, Lochaber axes were sold in Paris for a price of 5,000 francs.[1]
