Abstract: The article discusses the manifestations of “damaging” iron axes in the data of Lithuanian archaeology. The term “damage” is used conditionally to define not only the breaking or smashing of an axe but also the manifestations of deformations and other types of axe defects. More prominent examples are discussed in the article. The review has shown that this phenomenon is ambiguous and rather complex. Fragments of axe butts and cheeks with blades split off in deliberately regular shapes imply obvious defects, which originated at the time of rituals. The damage of blades provokes certain ambiguities. The defects of the axe in as many as three places of the metal part – butt, cheek and blade – cannot yet be properly explained. The phenomenon of axe “damaging” existed for nearly one-and-a-half thousand years until the final manifestations of the custom of placing axes into graves
