Hand-polished one-piece forged Chromolly steel head, with teeth along the entire length of the Neo-Classical pick. The modified reverse-curve inclination means the blade can be swung naturally, providing superb placement in varied types of ice. The blade is reinforced by a "web" that follows the strength lines. The ERGAL 7075 light alloy shaft corresponds to CE and UIAA norms. The included Easy Slider is a hand rest that can slide to the tail end of the shaft when hand support is needed and can also slide to the top end when used for walking. The Easy Slider supports your hand and protects you from violent blows against the wall when swing the axe. An elastic sling system avoid losing tool when climbing on rock or ice. Jorasses is a well-balanced ice axe with a very efficient and economic swing. It is solidly built and sturdy enough for professional users; a modern guide's right hand. Or if you prefer French: "Le vrai piolet du Guide."
