"This will definitely come in handy."
Henry Stein,
Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 1

The axe is a recurring weapon in Bendy and the Ink Machine, equipped in all chapters. It is the very first weapon Henry wields for clearing out the obstacles in his way and defending himself against enemies. Also, It could destroy doors to get to other locations.

Appearance

Originally for use in an emergency in case of fire, it appears to be based on a fireman's axe, while also resembling a hatchet. It has a pale tan blade and a black handle, with a wooden tube at the top near the axe-head, and ring near the bottom of the handle.

Its primary usage is for chopping wooden boards and even Bendy cutouts. It is also used as a weapon when fighting monsters encountered in several locations.

Usage and Locations

Bendy and the Ink Machine

Chapter 1: Moving Pictures

The axe is found in the room located in the building's lower level after walking down some service tunnels of the basement, after Henry falls through wooden planks while attempting to escape the flooding workshop. It appears on a workbench next to a small casket.

Chapter 2: The Old Song

At the start in the Ritual Room, Henry reclaims the axe that was leaning against one of the coffins, where the game left off at the end of Chapter 1. Its primary use in this chapter is to fight the Searchers, as well as breaking wooden boards. Towards the end of the chapter however, the axe breaks in half as soon as chopping down the last board to clear the hall completely while escaping from the sacrifice room, just before Henry encounters Ink Bendy.

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

During a series of fetch quests, the axe is given to Henry by Twisted Alice and used to destroy fifteen Bendy cutouts from various locations on Level K. Although, the Alice Angel cutout (seen in the Angel Path room) cannot be broken with the axe.

In the blocked room on Level 9, another axe can be found behind some of the crates next to Grant Cohen's audio log that can be used to break the wooden planks in order to access the enemy gauntlet.

Chapter 4: Colossal Wonders

The axe is only located in the attraction storage. It drops from within the workbench destroyed by Bertrum Piedmont during the boss fight, and is used to destroy the carousel's beam connectors to destroy each crane arms. The axe will soon break in half after breaking all four of Bertrum's crane arms.

Chapter 5: The Last Reel

The axe appears for the last time in Chapter 5. Tom is seen using it multiple times and Sammy returns using it in an attempt to kill Henry. The player uses the axe to fend off the Searchers and the now-hostile Lost Ones. The axe is lost, after falling down in the decrepit hallway.
