- n. the handle of an ax
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Two great hulking Aielmen, each an axe handle wide across the shoulders, sat right outside the tent, seemingly absorbed in a game of cat's cradle, but they had looked around immediately when her head appeared through the tentflaps.
The man came in with an axe handle flailing in a wide swing that even the most amateur of self-defenders would have treated with contempt.
He had his leather wristbands on to soak up the sweat from his arms, but the delicate hands were ungloved, gripping the axe handle lightly and with exquisitely directed skill.
