Hey, Private Haircut... I might o' taken a bit too much off... YOUR HEAD!
The Demoman to the beheaded Soldier

The Scotsman's Skullcutter is a community-created melee weapon for the Demoman. It is a bloodied double-bevelled battle-axe with a wooden shaft and spiked crossguard.

Like the Eyelander, this weapon has a large melee range and will decapitate enemies. It does not collect heads, though, so it does not provide additional health or speed when it kills an enemy player. Instead, it deals 20% more damage and can deal random critical hits. A single critical hit will kill any class that isn't overhealed, excluding the Heavy.

As the axe appears to have considerable weight, it will slow the Demoman down from 280 units/second, 93% of normal speed while it is the active weapon, to 238 units/second, 79% of normal speed. This is 8 units/second faster than a Heavy and 2 units/second slower than a Soldier, making him the second slowest class while the weapon is active.

The creator, 76561197972481083, also contributed the kill icon.
