The hot forged head is designed with performance and ergonomics to the fore and is forged in Switzerland. The head is extremely comfortable and easy to grip in bare, gloved and mitted hands, whilst the pick is designed to give the ideal balance between fall arrest and traction on moderate ground. You can break with this axe without too much rapid bite and yet it is curved enough to allow you to get through tricky bergschrunds. The adze is good for cutting but is steep enough to be used for hooking.
The spike is also hot forged to maximize strength, and like the head features a special surface treatment to prevent rust. It is angled optimally for downhill travel. Both the head and spike feature a large eyelet that can easily accommodate a karabiner.
The shaft is made from aircraft-grade anodized aluminum which is sandblasted for improved grip.
