Light weight, good bite, good room under the head…

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $50 from ebay

Summary

Light weight, good bite, good room under the head to attach a leash

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Effective tool

Cons

  • More expensive than similar axes that might weigh a little more

I have used this axe on several mountaineering trips. It bites well into snow and ice and is great for stabilizing the climber during steep approach hikes. I have practiced arresting with it many times and it is very effective at self arresting the climber.
