Raw materials & Components
The axe seems like it is made out of iron but as metallurgists have studied the weapon it seems like an unknown combination of Durilir and another unknown metal. The head is easy to sharpen and durable, having lasted several millennials, it is believed that once upon a time a dwarven or possibly divine smith created the weapon for some special use. The long bar of the same compound has seen battle after battle with scares all over it and still holds all of the weight that is the axe's head.
