Term: Axinomancy

DEFINITIONs:
1.  A little-known system of divination that uses axes, hatchets, or occasionally saws. Usually, this involved throwing the axe and interpreting the vibrations of the handle or blade when it landed in a solid object such as a table, a tree, or the ground. Another method is to heat the blade so that it glows, then interpret the shapes and colors seen in the blade much as you might interpret patterns in tea leaves.

2.  Divination with an axe. Toss it in the air in an open area. If it lands with the blade in the ground, note the direction in which the handle points for the answer to your question
