Commonly known as the Francisca axe, it was the characteristic weapon of choice of the Franks in the Early Middle Ages. Historians suggest that Franks often threw their axes with the purpose of breaking shields and disrupting the enemy line before using it in hand-to-hand combat. The Francisca axe when thrown also caused a psychological effect, in that the enemy might turn and run in the fear that another volley was coming.
