Raven Ultra Ice Axe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Awesome I bought this axe about a month ago to take backpacking and on light/fast missions, and it's awesome. I'm also a small female, and the 50 cm is great for me--still feel in control glissading without the extra weight or length. I love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and lightweight I love this ice axe! It's crazy lightweight. I carry it around with me all spring during ski outings. You never know when you're going to need an axe so great for that. This is not the most robust axe but that isn't what it's intended for, I use the Venom axe for those type of outings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Axe but... Great and sturdy axe when used for its intended purpose. Not so great for cracking open a cool beverage afterwards...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Ski Mountaineering Axe Very lightweight and durable ice axe. Have used it mostly for ski mountaineering. Great for those times when you want to give the mountain a handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Ski Mountaineering Axe Why carry a longer axe when you have ski poles for lower angled terrain? For ski mountaineering, this axe is perfect: short for easy packing, lightweight, and strong. Aluminum axes are lighter, but this one inspires much more confidence for only a couple ounce weight penalty.
