The Grivel G1+ SA Ice Axe has a hot-forged steel pick for serious durability and a slightly curved shaft to make self-arrests more secure. Grivel also added an ergonomic shape to the head to make it a comfortable place to rest your hand when you're crossing glaciers.

A word of warning. This is the G1+ SA, and not what is pictured, see pic I uploaded. This axe more closely resembles the Nepal SA. It has a curved shaft and no grip. It is still a good axe. If you are looking for an ice axe with a grip, though, this is not what you are looking for.
