    Superb light!

    I used it allredy for two years and I am very pleased with it! Why don't you make a pair with a little hammer for the Fox Carving? Just exactly the same but with hammer, not with the adze. I would love to have a pair! You know, like the Petzl Gully...

    Eispickel für Skihochtouren

    Ich nutze den Eispickel für Skihochtouren und Freeride. Dabei ist der Eispickel leicht und stört nicht beim tragen am Rucksack. Vorallem morgens bei harten Bedingungen gibt der Eispickel Sicherheit. Durch die Form berührt die Hand nicht den Schnee.
