Background: A vibro-ax was a standard ax handle-fitted with a vibration generator and power cell, causing the ax head to vibrate rapidly, thus creating a vibroweapon. Vibroweapons had more cutting power with less effort from the wielder. Some handles were designed to dampen the vibration effect for the user, though cruder versions, such as Arg’garoks wielded by the Gamorreans, used wooden handles. These weapons were often left deactivated, simply to allow the user to show off their physical strength and to intimidate rivals, since these weapons were capable of easily decapitating most humanoid species with a single blow.

A vibro-ax required two energy cells to operate. They were considered restricted weapons on most civilized worlds.

Variants of the vibro-ax included the Acidic Paragon vibro axe, which actually exuded acid, the sophisticated BD-1 Cutter vibro-ax, and the Clan Groogrun vibro-ax, which was another Gamorrean vibro-ax.
