The Bluebird ice axe is ideal as a trekking ice axe, simple, robust and no-nonsense for when high altitude or winter walking starts to look suspiciously like mountaineering, and above all it is light , just 356g...but not too light. The most versatile and robust axe in Blue Ice's range, the Bluebird is designed for steep snow or ice slopes.
The Bluebird features a hot forged, stainless-steel, aggressive pick designed for penetration and grip in hard ice that performs well on steep couloirs, easy mixed ground and complicated ridges in the French Alps, a good sized adze for cutting steps and digging snow holes, a curved aircraft-grade anodized, sandblasted aluminum shaft increases clearance when climbing over bergschrunds, and a tough, sharp spike is optimized for downhill travel and essential for self-belaying and holding slips so they don't become a fall. The head is comfortable to hold with the pick facing forward and features a special surface treatment to prevent rust, making is robust when used for multiple difficult anchors. Both the head and spike feature a large eyelet that can easily accommodate a carabiner.
In short the Bluebird is a minimalist, lightweight classic Alpine mountaineering axe, designed for mountaineering, ski and glacier touring. Whether setting off for the summit of Mont Blanc, heading up the CMD Arête on Ben Nevis or tackling grade II gullies in the Cairngorms, this should be your axe of choice.
