Product feature
  1. Pick
    Banana shaped pick made from tooled steel, effective on hard packed snow and ice. Laser machined; sharpened teeth and tip give you pin point accuracy. Rust resistant surface treatment.
  2. Shaft
    Medium size curve shaft, makes it versatile (walking ice axe or ice tool). Aluminium shaft making it lighter.Narrower mid shaft (Carving concept) allows you to get a better grip, whilst making shaft much stiffer.
  3. Handle
    Lower shaft grip making it more adhesive, without undermining hand grip position. Slight hand rest on lower shaft for temporary use as ice tool (crossing a randkluft or a steep ridge), without penalising penetration in snow.
  4. Spike
    Steel spike for using as a walking ice axe. Rust resistant surface treatment.
  5. Adze
    Rounded adze on top gives you a better grip.

    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.
    Design, balance, versatility, light weight, price.
    No disappointments!
