David Leatherhoff's Axe is a secret weapon in Cry of Fear. Unlocked after finding it in the "Heaven" scenario and killing a twitcher with it (which will also unlock the Twitcher Hoodie). It's the most powerful melee weapon in the game, capable of killing most common enemies with one blow. However, it's not recommended to use it against Tallers or Flygares.

Note: To access the "Heaven" scenario, you must deliver the secret package in the mailbox near Harbor College.
