Great length option and nice handrestI struggled with trying to get a set of axes that would do everything...these have a nice curve (wish it was more bent) but at 57cm it was a good length. The hand rest is beefier than what the pics make it out to be. The button for the handle was quite difficult to depress to slide the handle (don't expect to do it with gloves on).,,,,It feels comfortable enough in the hand.,,,,This comes with a leash.
