Long Description

An indispensable tool for thrill-seeking mountaineers, this ice axe is just as fit for saving a life as it is for taking one. Its shaft of white mountain pine separates a steel pick and adze at one end from a steel spike at the base. Not only can it be jabbed into the side of a mountain or used to cut footholds into frozen terrain, it also comes in handy should an adventurer stumble across one of the Ramtops' more unsavory residents. Mountains aren't all that this axe is fit to conquer, when held in the right hands.

Appraises As
