Probably the single worst weapon type in the game. Slower than Straight Sword, crappy reach and no Hyper Armor. Only partial exceptions are Butcher's Knife (for its silly reach, excellent scaling and neat Health Regen gimmick) and Winged Knight Twin Axes for Spin2Win.

No matter what you're looking for, there's a 90% chance another weapon does it better than Axes do.
