Detailed Product Description



Signed by Kurt Diemberger

This is a very unique, old ice axe that is 40.75 inches long.  It is a Swiss axe and is rather long and perfect for display over your mantlepiece. 

 

We have been offering antique wood handled ice axes since 1990. Up until 2007 we only offered axes signed by Ed Hillary, Reinhold Messner and many other legendary climbers, perfect for display on your mantlepiece! After Hillary passed away we started offering unsigned axes as well and we have had some axes signed by Diemberger. 


These types of axes with a long handle were designed for use as traveling on glaciers, step chopping, and ice axe arrests and belays. They can still be used for that, although the modern change to metal and synthetic handles was because of their one flaw, they can break. So use them in low stress situations, or better, hang them on your wall so you can enjoy them every day!


Postage in Ice Axes is $35 Priority Mail in the USA, $75 Canada, $75 International. They only weigh about 2 pounds each, but for shipping they weigh 4 lbs. We use special boxes, and wrap the steel parts in tape and bubble wrap, and they will arrive in good shape wherever you live!
