More Information

The general term for ax is 'obmaQ. Its handle is its DeS and its blade is its ghIt. These words, DeS and ghIt, when referring to humanoid anatomy, mean "arm" and "open, flat hand" (as opposed to a fist), respectively, suggesting that at one time the ax was considered an extension of the warrior himself. (KGT p. 63)
