Eduga (Battle Axe)

By: Ethan Rider Tagged:

Known as warriors, the Fang possessed shields, lances, spears, short swords, and battle-axes. They also used crossbows, but mainly only for hunting.

The Fang didn't use throwing knives, as they considered them curiosities or relics from another era. As for battle axes, it is apparent that the Fang discontinued their use earlier than other knife types, evinced by how much rarer they are in museums and private collections.
