An axe-headed weapon with a hook for tripping, the lochaber axe is essentially a larger halberd lacking the top-spike. A lochaber axe has reach. You can strike opponents 10 feet away with it, but you can't use it against an adjacent foe.
You can also use a lochaber axe to make trip attacks. If you are tripped during your own trip attempt, you can drop the lochaber axe to avoid being tripped.
