The shaft's diameter is suitable for most hand sizes. The shaft includes a spike and a hand rest, without hindering ice axe penetration into snow to perform anchor.

Its low weight and technical features make this ice axe highly versatile. It could become your one and only ice axe for everything. Its shape and size 54 or 60 cm will assist you to safely progress on climbs and descents or along slopes or snow ridge. Its technical features allows to deal with a steep randkluft or a short technical passage. This ice axe's durability allows you to use it for solid anchoring.

    Lightweight Alpine Ice Axe
    Design, balance, versatility, light weight, price. No disappointments!

    I have been an avid mountain climber and alpinist since my teens. I am also a University Professor of materials science - keenly interested in acquiring sturdy and reliable equipment with the best combination of features. So I have quite a collection of ice-axes (from BD, Grivel, Petzl, etc) purchased over several decades. These include the ultra-light Simond Fox Carving ice tool which has a shaft with a curved and and indented cross-section that confers strength according to engineering I-beam theory. This type of strong but light shaft is now incorporated in the Naja Light ice tools. A full size reverse-curve steel pick is provided and a good adze, along with a spike at the end of the shaft. The axe is suitable for a range of situations, ranging from glacier walking, crevasse protection, ice axe belays, self-arrest and ascent of steep technical ice, such as bergschrunds, and neve. It is equally suitable for winter mountain conditions in the UK, including Scottish winter grades I to IV. It is not intended for ice-fall climbing. In summer Alpine use it is an excellent tool for mixed ascents in regions such as Chamonix /Mont Blanc.It is aesthetically pleasing to use and handle as well as better - in many respects - as many ice axes costing twice the price. In consequence, it is feasible to replace it economically, if necessary, since lightness and function are achieved without incorporating replaceable picks, with their heavy and cumbersome attachment mechanisms. I greatly enjoyed using this ice axe in the Alps this year.
