Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile Axe I've had this ice axe for about two years and used it on several multiple climbs around the PNW. Overall, this is a very good ice axe; it's light weight design is really appreciated on longer days. I've found it comfortable in my hands (although some people with extra-large hands have said it doesn't fit them quite as well). The curved handle does make it easier to self-arrest in my opinion as it gives you more leverage. The only fault I've found with it is that it is slightly more difficult to plant into snow if you're setting up an anchor. While I was still able to do it, the curved handle means your energy is not going directly down into the snow, which if the snow conditions are a little heavier or more compact makes things difficult. Overall I've been very happy with this ice axe, and would certainly buy it again.
