The Black Axe was a great axe used by Gothmog, the Lord of Balrogs in battle.
The axe was infamous for striking down Fingon, the fourth High King of the Ñoldor in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. It was probably lost in the Fountain of the King after Gothmog and Ecthelion slew each other in the Square of the Palace during the Fall of Gondolin.
