Portrayal in adaptationsEdit
Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogyEdit
Next to his Battle Axe the weapon Gimli uses most is his Walking Axe, he uses singly against the Warg Riders that ambush the Rohirrim villagers. It is a long wooden handle with a single axe blade at the top, the straight metal shaft on the blade lets Gimli grasp it and use it as a walking staff. This axe was also carried by Gimli's father, Glóin, during the Quest of the Lonely Mountain.
