      Comments about Black Diamond Raven:

      Not accurate for me to rate or comment about the product because I have not used it yet. But I like to comment about the retailer. Axes came as expected. Unlike some deceived companies, this company described accurately about the product. It took longer than other retailers like Backcountry... for product to arrive. But I was able to get it at a discount price so I was happy. Also, the company is in Spokane WA, so I was not so nervous buying for the first time (I am in WA).

        Lightweight, convenient to hold, very sharp out of the box. Great for classic piolet purposes (self-arrest, snow anchor, etc.). A decent versatile tool, tried it on ice walls up to 70 deg.

          Comments about Black Diamond Raven:

          I got the 80cm and still was a little short, (Long, long legs... short upper body and arms). But besides that, this axe is just perfect, ultra lightweight and reliable. Well balanced (even this 80cm monster).

          Good work from Black diamond here.

            I haven't used an ice axe before. I bought one for guiding Mountain goat hunters this fall. What a difference this made. Slippery steep slopes were nothing. i never sunk it once into ice, just the ground to help with climbing and decending. it worked great. we used them to anchor out tent and raft as well. i recomend this product to anyone
