The Steel Axe is the first weapon that can't be bought. It also represents a huge power spike for the player as it allows him to defeat the Jousting Fox, the enemies in the 1222, 1333, 2000 and 2222 areas and, most importantly, the ??? mobs, thus enabling access to better weapons and later areas of the game.
