Woman of Gor
Torvaldslander Battle Ax

. . .blond giant from Torvaldsland The large, curved,
double-bladed, long-handled ax lay beside him.
Hunters of Gor, Page 47
Great Ax
The spine, of course would be immediatly severed;
moreover, part of the ax will, if the blow be powerful,
emerge from the abdomen. It takes, however, more
than one blow to cut a body, that of a man, in two. To
strike more than twice, however, is regarded as
clumsiness. Marauders of Gor, page 104
Men waited below for those who still moved, with
axes. Renegades of Gor, Page 282

. . .shattering his chains with the blunt hammerlike backs of their great, curved, single-bladed axes. Marauders of Gor, Page 27

Alar Ax

An ax, a typical Alar ax, long-handled, armed with its heavy iron blade, was handed to the girl. Mercenaries of Gor, Page 54

Among them was the heavy, single-bladed Alar war ax. Mercenaries of Gor, Page 71

She tried again to lift the ax, and then, again, lowered it, until she held it before her, as she had before, with difficulty, with both
hands, her hands separated well on the handle. Mercenaries of Gor, Page 57

Canhpi

It had been given to him by a Yellow Knife in mounted combat, the result of a stroke by a long-handled, stone-bladed tomahawk, or
canhpi. Blood Brothers of Gor, Page 9

I saw Alfred struck down from behind with the heavy, balled knob of a carved wooden Canhpi. Blood Brothers of Gor, Page 447

He had not perished of the blow from the knob-headed canhpi. Blood Brothers of Gor, Page 450

The other drew back a heavy club, the termination of which contained a heavy, wooden, ball-like knob. Savages of Gor, Page 288

Trade Ax or Hatchet

A long-handled, single-bladed ax was pressed into her hands. It was a trade ax. Its back was blunted, for the driving of pegs,
stakes and
wedges. Blood Brothers of Gor, Page 35

Grunt was engaged in conversation with four or five of the Dust-Leg men. Then he rose to his feet, and went to his stores, to bring
forth a fine hatchet. Savages of Gor, Page 214

She became Grunt’s for three hatchets. Savages of Gor, Page 226

The expression, for most practical purposes, signifies a certain type of gap, such as, for example, might occur in the edge of a trade
ax, or hatchet, for use in drawing nails, an occupation for which red savages, of course, have little use. Blood Brothers of Gor, Page
