      by fromGreat all around axe Great axe, used it for general mntring in the ADK and NH Whites, ligth easy to carry when not in use. Does the job. Never had to use it for a real self arrest, but have practiced with it and it was strong and stable.

      by fromTrustworthy I have taken this up to Mt. Adams, St. Helens and Muir and have had great luck so far. It's lightweight and holds well on my pack. I feel completely safe with this ax.

      by fromGreat for hairy snow travel Great for walking not climbing use on snow banks and any gradual accents. Works for self arresting. The leash is a definite must have with item. It is very sharp so for travel and packing should have something over all three ends of axe.

      by fromLight, Easy To Carry, Solid As A Rock. This was really my first year of mountaineering. I did a lot of learning with this axe through trial and error, being taught by folks that know their stuff, and by trying to practice and learn myself. I'm pretty sure I put this axe through the ringer, and it came out with flying colors. It's light, comfortable in my hands, swings well, and arrested me when I needed arresting. I have no complaints. I'll be happy to use it next year too.
