A battle-axe is a kind of melee weapon, a more powerful two-handed version of the regular axe. When unidentified, it appears as a double-headed axe. Having a double head, the battle-axe is twice as heavy as the regular (single-headed) axe.
In addition to being found randomly generated on new dungeon levels, in shops, and as a death drop, the battle-axe is one of a number of two-handed weapons that strong monsters can be generated wielding.
