How long do ice axes usually last? I am new to mountaineering so am just starting to look at equipment, but will I need to be replacing this every couple of years or will one ice axe last me for a while? Thanks!

The ax will last a long time. Especially if you're just mountaineering. My dad has an ax that's 30 years old.
