Grivel The North Machine Carbon
The Grivel North Machine Carbon is a super-strong all-round ice axe, made from lightweight materials for a long-lasting, durable tool. A perfect companion for high-grade mountaineering, alpinism, and Scottish gullies and ice.
What makes the Grivel North Machine Carbon so strong? Well, half of the reason is in its name, and the other is in its pick. The new G-bone shaft is constructed from super-light, super-strong carbon, which stays warm in cold conditions and is ergonomically shaped along the entire length for maximum ease-of-use. The chromoly steel head is also lighter, stronger, and more durable, ideal for use in ice axe blades.
The North machine Carbon is compatible with the Ice blade+ (designed more for the mountains as it has and adze and hammer) and the slightly thicker Mix blade which is ideal for Scottish mixed climbing and dry tooling.

Looks good, handle is nice
Have been disappointed to learn it's a carbon wrap on a light Alu tube,
Many scarry pics of these breaking can be found on the internet
I was impressed about its lightly and design. Very good handgrip and flexible for different mountainering activity. I'll suggest it to everyone!
A great tool with a not so great paint job :)
