Black Dow - purchased from trader at Maadoran The Temple.

It's a crude and unadorned weapon, made for killing and nothing else. It bears hammer marks and dents, but the edge is razor-sharp and the balance is nearly perfect.
The stats are quite similar to a steel Skeggox.

The Pendulum of Judgement - purchased from The Exotic Emporium trader at Maadoran Merchants Plaza.

It's truly one of the finest axes you've ever held. Whoever's made definitely knew how to work steel. The blade has both a primary and secondary bevel. The primary bevel is established well up the axe head to facilitate deep cuts, while the edge bevel is slightly blunter to prevent the edge from folding, chipping, or dulling quickly.
The stats are quite similar to a steel Mineb.
