The new Monte Bianco ice axe was designed for traditional requirements of classical alpinism. The head was forged in a single piece with modern style serrations. The head and shaft are joined together with light alloy: the best material has been used for every bit of this ice axe. The shaft, made in carbon/wood composite brings together the pleasure of wood with the strength of carbon. This model is certified to CE norms. A tribute to tradition using today's most advanced technologies. An attractive and welcome companion for many years to come. Weight: 602 g, 21.25 oz CE Certified B "
