What is a contained energy axe? | Lightsaber Terminology

A contained energy axe, sometimes colloquially referred to as a lightsaber axe or a light-axe, is a rare lightsaber variation featuring an axe-head style blade. The weapon runs on a diatium power cell. When activated, the long-handled, exotic lightsaber emits an axe head blade comprised of a magnetically contained energy blade. More cumbersome and unwieldy than many other lightsabers, the contained energy axe favors a wielder who is capable of channeling brute strength.
