The modern standard. No more bashed or frozen knuckles. Comes with the (thin) and very precise Pure Ice pick which is excellent for vertical waterfall ice. Lightweight yet very balanced swing. The only thing you need to do is make sure the bolts on the headweights are tighten down and then create your own clip-in loops of the outer sheath of 4-5 mm cord and apply them through the 4 kN-rated hole in the handle (the spike is not even strong enough to hang on, rated to 2 kN). A very good tool even for technical alpine goulotte climbing although a more traditional axe would obviously be preferred for more general alpine use. Excellent price and delivery from Varuste.net
The nomic is the best product.
Excellent grip can hang very comfortably
Incredible ergonomics, very versitile and a great feel to swing.
Just my favourite ice axe for steep terrain. Perfect swing on ice.
