It is the most gorgeous ice tool I've ever used, and it feels great. Stays warmer in the hand, shocks are attenuated by the wood. Great balance of aggressiveness for mixed and technical climbing along with smooth function for WI climbing.

I recently had the opportunity to try a pair of Kronos at the Michigan ice fest. With the temperature at -8 deg. that morning I figured it would be a good test. First impression upon gripping the handle is its size. Seems a bit on the fat side. To me, this is a great since I have long fingers. It's a very comfortable grip!
The overall weight of the tool is very good. Not the lightest and definitely not a sledgehammer. Since the pic extends into the handle a few inches the balance is slightly different. This was a plus tapping into the hard brittle ice to get that sucker to stick. It just seemed easier to control. If a fast heavy swing is required then they perform like any other tool in my opinion and trust me I beat the crap out them, they are tough! They say the wood will help with cold hands. I'm not going to say my hands were warm due to using a wooden tool but they stayed comfortable wearing BD Arc gloves, not the warmest glove out there. Overall I think it's a great tool. If you can't climb with these tools you can't climb! ( yes I stole that) The End!

Used the axes today at Ouray Ice fest and they were awesome!! So light, with a good amount of weight in the head to really drive the axe in :) and, they stay really warm! So important on those really cold days.
