Details

The French Alpine Ice Axe is an authentic tool that is issued to every soldier in the French Army Alpine Brigades. These elite forces operate in the Alpine regions of France which have some of the most extreme weather conditions in Europe. With these extreme conditions, these forces require the best equipment that is available to ensure victory in any Alpine combat conditions.

When the French Army was working to select equipment for the Alpine region, they tested various ice axe designs. What was found was the design that features a straight shaft was the most ideal for soldiers needs. The head of the ice axe was designed to give it maximum benefit for creating ice steps into hard snow and ice. With these features listed as criteria, the largest winter tool companies in France began to design ice axes to meet the needs of these Alpine forces.

We were fortunately enough to purchase a large lot of French Alpine Forces equipment which included these ice axes. During the inspection we found various manufacturers were used to make these ice axes. After careful sorting we now have the ability to sell you the specific manufacturer and model of ice axe that you would like. You can see representative pictures of each type of ice ax to help you narrow down your selection should you not have a specific manufacturer in mind.

  • Authentic French Army Alpine Ice Axes

    This is a really fine quality ice axe that for my purposes is as good as new. Similar axes on eBay and other sites sell for twice as much as this one; it's a great deal.
