The Aztar's are fairly light, and not really up to belting pins or penetrating old alpine ice.

Have a look at the BD Vipers or new DMM equivalent, and get them shipped from overseas (the Vipers cost $200 retail in Canada). Can give you an in depth review of both tools in a few weeks.

I've also got a Charlet Moser Guide traditional axe, which is quite sturdy (i.e. heavy). Never use it these days (and you can borrow it if you like). If I had my time again, I would get a light-weight traditional axe for the snow plods, and a good set of technical tools for everything else.
