It does what youâd expect
Itâs an ice axe. It does what youâd expect it to do. The grip is awesome. It keeps some of your hand from freezing while in deep snow conditions. The leash is ehhhhhh. Iâm not impressed by its static nature but it has saved me from completely losing it, which is its purpose. The head is great for a basic axe. You do need to sharpen it up every once in a while like all other axes. Great intro to nountaineering axe period.
