Bazuso wielded a large battle axe during his fight against Guts. He was most likely very skilled in wielding it, due to his reputation. The size of the battle axe fit well with Bazuso's height.

When no-one seemed to be courageous enough to battle Bazuso, Guts came toward him with the objective of defeating him and wining the extra reward for beating the general. Guts and Bazuso began to fight in equal terms, but thanks to luck Guts broke his axe and finally killed him.
