      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Raven Mountaineering Axe:

      I used this on a very vertical climb over ice and boulders. I had rigg'd up a wrist lanyard to help with grip. I had my full weight on it several times. The teeth bit very well. Other axes have sharp teeth and tear up your pack, this one is perfect.

      All around good ice axe

      By Casey

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Raven Mountaineering 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.
