The Lochaber axe was a Scottish war axe. The name comes from the Lochaber region in the western Scottish Highlands in and around the Fort William area. In hand-to-hand combat, the axe was used in a thrusting motion or to dismount cavalry using the hook. As the cavalry charged, the Highlanders would suddenly change formation from a large body into smaller bodies of men with clear channels between them. The horses would naturally go into these channels, and the foot soldiers would hook the cavalry off their horses, then use their axes on them with devastating effect.
