Venom Tech Pick

Upgrade your Black Diamond Venom ice axe with the Venom Tech Pick, and take your trusty tool on steep ice and alpine routes that a classic axe can't touch. This reverse-curved pick provides better hard-ice penetration than the standard Venom pick. However, while this curved shape gives you more security on steep ice, it makes self arresting difficult. So for basic mountaineering, stick with the Classic pick.

This doesn’t fit my venom ice axe

The groove that is on the left side does not work with my venom ice axe. The one I have requires the groove to be on the right side. After looking at Black Diamonds website. None of the spare picks they sell have a groove on the left side. Seems weird to me.

Ads to the Venom versatility

Transforms the Venom into a serviceable ice tool - but it's still not meant for lots of water ice or alpine climbing.
