"Axe skill helps a user wield heavy chopping weapons like war axes and battleaxes more effectively."
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Construction Set[src]

Axe is a combat specialization skill in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. The Axe skill determines the player's effectiveness when fighting with weapons of this type. Axe is governed by the Strength attribute.

There are two primary types of weapons governed by this skill: one-handed (war axe) and two-handed (battle axe). One-handed weapons are generally lighter and faster, and do less damage, but allow the use of a shield granting greater protection. Two-handed are generally heavier and slower, and do more damage, but prevent the use of a shield thereby sacrificing protection.

The skill level is increased while wielding this weapon during combat. When a strike lands successfully, progress towards the skill increase a percentage. When the progression of the current skill level reaches 100%, the skill level increases by 1.
