Very durable over three years of heavy use in Alaska. Light and utilitarian, it has never given me a worry. Shaft won't bend with t-trenches or crevasse haul, and ferrule penetrates well for boot/axe. No trouble with rivets that join the steel to alloy. Only fair at AI3 or above, but you'd be using paired tools in that setting anyway. Recommend this axe, it is light light light.
