A bloodless version of the cleaver.

Fel Edged Battleaxe
Required Level: 70

It might be a pain to find someone who can make this, and the mats (especially Primal Mights) are pretty expensive. Still, quite nice looking.
Frostbite
Required Level: 60
Source: Vendor (Horde)

This nice looking axe is perfect for Frost DKs, and is available at an early level. It costs 175 Honor and can be purchased at the Alterac Valley quartermaster in Hillsbrad. It is Horde-only.
Resonating Axe
Required Level: 67
Source: Quest (Aldor)

This unusual axe is Aldor-only, and comes from a simple quest in Netherstorm. One of only two axes with this model, and the other is a two-hander.
Stalactite Chopper

Source: Vendor

This axe is HUGE. It requires Revered with Sons of Hodir, and the base price is 59g 7s 32c.
The Key
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Violet Hold

Great looking axe, but a pain to get due to Violet Hold's random boss mechanic. It drops from Lavanthor, at a 30% drop rate.

Warlord's Axe
Required Level: 53

Bogreaver
Required Level: 70
Source: Heroic Underbog

A unique axe model, this has a low 15% drop rate.
Crescent of Brooding Fury
Required Level: 74
Source: Quest

Reward for killing Ragemane in Zul'Drak. There is also a recolor available from Heroic Oculus, but screw that noise.
Notched Cobalt War Axe

Surprisingly detailed axe model. There are also a billion Bind-on-Equip variations with slight color differences, all green quality between levels 70-80: Bone Cleaver, Dire Axe, Disk Axe, Skeletal Hacker, Snowy Edge.
Falric's Wrist-Chopper
Required Level: 80
Source: Heroic Halls of Reflection

I'm not sure how easy this would be to solo at 85, but this is an amazing, and large, model. 29% drop rate, and bonus, Falric is the first boss.
Hate-Forged Cleaver
Required Level: 80
Source: Halls of Reflection

Has a 21% drop rate from completing Halls of Reflection on Normal difficulty. Unique model. Looks like a parrot.

    Thanks for putting these lists together! I was a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities for my rogue, and these lists give me more manageable targets to work for.

    I noticed that the first 3 you list are actually maces, though.

    Cheers!
