Viking battle axe, the bearded variety with a cutting edge extending below the throat. Beard used to hook an enemy's shield, yanking it out of the way to make room for a downward sword strike.
I named my giant schnauzer Skeggox because he is as deadly as a battle axe in the hands of a berserker. Skeggs, like all giants, has a full beard.
