Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe
The Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe is designed to give you the greatest comfort and ease of use possible. The ergonomic, stainless steel head has a flat top and hourglass shape at its connection to the shaft. This creates a shape that's comfortable to hang onto and allows fast transition to self-arrest. The Raven's pick shape is very secure in self-arrest, and the large adze makes the dismal job of chopping a belay ledge a little more bearable. You're going to be walking for days with your ice axe. The Raven's comfortable head will make all the difference.

Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe with Grip Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe with Grip
Improving on one of the more popular ice axes of all time, Black Diamond gave the Raven a rubber bottom grip to increase comfort and security on steep terrain. Not only does the rubber provide better grip when you're swinging the Raven on 60-degree neve, it also insulates your hands from the metal shaft to eliminate chilled fingers. Of course, the Raven still has Black Diamond's ultra-comfortable hourglass-shaped head for more mellow terrain, and it comes with a Slider Leash.

Black Diamond Raven Pro Ice Axe Black Diamond Raven Pro Ice Axe
The Raven Pro Ice Axe is the lightest, full-service piolet available, period. It has a super clean and simple design for the high-end user who refuses to sacrifice performance for less weight. The sleek and ergonomic head provides a sure grip and all-day comfort--this also makes for a fast, smooth hand rotation when going into self-arrest. Boot-axe belays are a snap too. The classically curved adze blasts ice, chops steps, and clears snow quickly and easily. Not just for the climber, the Raven Pro is a ski/snowboard-mountaineer's dream as well. At 11 ounces, you may think you forgot to bring it with you.

Black Diamond Swift Ice Axe Black Diamond Swift Ice Axe
Black Diamond's Swift Ice Axe takes the classic piolet to the next level to help you achieve your mountaineering objectives. As the only T-rated mountaineering axe in Black Diamond's line, the Swift combines insane strength with remarkable lightness to help you make short work of front pointing up hard snow or traversing technical ridges into ski lines. What really sets the Swift apart, though, is its FlickLock adjustable pommel, which slides up and down the shaft to provide more support in committing terrain where your axe might be the only thing between you and a 5,000-foot ride into a bergschrund.

Black Diamond Venom Ice Axe Black Diamond Venom Ice Axe
A long snow route with a couple pitches of ice is the hardest type of climbing to select an appropriate tool for. It used to be that you could either choose a good ice tool with questionable self-arrest capabilities or a standard ice axe that can barely climb a pitch of easy ice--not anymore. Black Diamond designed the Venom Ice Axe to self-arrest and plunge into the snow easily but still offer good ice performance.

Blue Ice Bluebird Evo Ice Axe Blue Ice Bluebird Evo Ice Axe
Just like human evolution, the evolution of ice axes is a slow, barely noticeable process, but those subtle differences make a world of difference. Take Blue Ice's Bluebird Evo Ice Axe, for example, which only has a slight bend in the shaft compared to the original Bluebird Ice Axe. This bend puts the spike at an angle more ideal for stabbing into ice when you're ski mountaineering, similar to the Galapagos finch's beak angling differently in order to get to cacti fruit.
