Show Description

The shape of this hybrid axe provides good clearance when needed on steep snow or ice. The curved shaft helps prevent bashed knuckles when swinging. A smooth adze supports your hand when walking and its edges make short work of chopping steps.

  • Aluminum shaft has a curved upper for clearance. Straight lower for plunging.
  • 3mm pick is hot-forged chromoly steel. Thin tip offers good penetration in ice and the teeth offer solid hooking on rock.
  • Steel adze supports your hand comfortably and is angle to direct force down the shaft.
  • Stainless steel head has a wide oval hole for clipping a carabiner.
  • Tilted adze directs the axe into the snow when used upright in cane position.
  • Stainless steel spike with a clippable hole.
  • The 52cm length weighs 360grams, 59cm length weighs 380grams, and 66cm length weighs 400grams.
