A throwing axe is an axe that is used primarily as a missile type of weapon. They are most often thrown in an overhand motion (much like throwing a baseball) in a manner that causes the axe to rotate as it travels through the air. Throwing axes have been used since prehistoric times and were developed into the Francisca by the Franks in the third century AD. A skilled axe thrower will rotate the axe exactly once throughout the flight so that the sharpened edge of the head will penetrate the target.
