“A weighty but more powerful axe.”
—In-game description, Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem.

The Steel Axe (鋼の斧 Hagane no ono) is the second most common Axe that exists in the Fire Emblem Series. Conforming to the standard relationship that is shared between iron and steel weapons, the Steel Axe is notably stronger and more expensive than its iron counterpart. Despite this, however, the cumbersome nature of this axe usually causes players to outfit axe users with the Iron Axe instead.

In Fates, the Steel Star Axe (鋼の投撃斧 Hagane no tōgeki ono, lit. Steel Throwing Axe) is the enemy-exclusive ranged variant of the Steel Axe.
