Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by All around good ice axe Hasn't seen much use with a dry winter, but has held up beautifully on short treks, helped save me after falling through an iced over lake, and worked as a technical to scale a small 15ft waterfall. Not a single scratch or dulled a bit. Good quality for the price. The shaft is just a little hard to keep grip on but can be remedied with a bike inner tube or properly wrapped paracord.

Rated 4 out of 5 by The Standard I've had this axe for years and it always delivers. Sure, there is lighter, but you won't be disappointed. December 31, 2014
