|The Westman Arming Sword|
|The Hassan Saif or Crescent Blade|
The Heavy Blades, too, come in two standard styles. The Falchion or Broadblade is a heavier version of the Saif, whose design also comes from the Hassan culture. This broad-bladed sword swings like a Sword and cuts like an Axe. The Claymore is a sword of Westman-make: a longer and heavier version of the Arming Sword.

|The Battle Axe|
The Battle Axe is the most typical of the Axes found amongst the people of Nod: a haft with a sharpened head on the end. The Battle Axe is an evolution of the simple Hatchet, but specialized for warfare.
The Sickle is a version of Axe imported from the Bantu people. A large, concave blade derived from the ancient Bantu ceremonial execution-blade which is symbolic of warrior prowess. The Execution Knife is deadlier than a Battle Axe when connecting, but heavier and more difficult to wield.
