just wondering if the lack of rivets holding the head/adaze to the shaft has bothered anyone?
No. Out of all the ice axes (not tools) and piolets out there they are probably 50/50 when it comes to rivets in the head. Some have them and some don't. For a piolet (non aggressive tool) you don't really need them. You see rivets on tools like this when the shaft is bent, leading to a more aggressive tool used for vertical-ish ice. Make sense? Hope this helps.
