primarily for their innate abilities to smith metal and stone, Dwarves
are proud and strong-willed, ready for battle at a moment's notice. Like
many Dwarves, Gimli, son of Gloin, favours the axe as his primary
weapon. Accompanying his father to the Council of Elrond at Rivendell,
Gimli is chosen to represent the Dwarves in the Fellowship of the Ring.
After the Fellowship becomes separated, Gimli fights valiantly alongside
Legolas and Aragorn from the Battle of Helms Deep to the Black Gates of
Mordor. With his unshakable determination for success, he proves to be a
valuable aid to the Fellowship. In Moria, after a cave-troll destroys
the tomb of his forefather, Balin, Gimli is able to retrieve the mighty
two-handed Battle Axe that had once belonged to the Dwarf-lord. From
that point on, Gimli uses this Battle Axe for all close combat. Prepared
for as many different situations as possible, he carries the Battle Axe
with him, along with his Walking Axe, Bearded Axe, and two throwing
axes. The massive head of this Battle Axe could be swung in both
directions, making it a good choice for rapid moving combat.
