Black Diamond Cobra Ice Hammer The ultimate all-around carbon fiber tool, the Black Diamond Cobra Ice Hammer provides an exceptional performance in leash-less mixed, ice and alpine climbing ventures. With a reduced weight and improved rigidity, the hammer is now more versatile than ever. Modularly designed, the stainless steel head provides accurate strikes and allows the pick and hammer to be removed and replaced. It is equipped with a CEB-B certified Laser Pick that has a thin taper and low-volume tip that penetrates and displaces minimal ice. The patented, lightweight carbon fiber Shaft is CEN-T certified and has the greatest clearance of any Black Diamond tool. It dampens your swing and it doesn't chill your hand. The shaft is equipped with a Cobra Strike for an easier matching and choking up, and a Cobra Fang for optimized hand support and finger protection. The perfect combination of durability and versatility, the Black Diamond Cobra Ice Hammer is a cutting edge for safety and convenience in adventuring steep ice or arduous alpine terrain.
The Cobra Ice Tool has been at the cutting edge of ice and alpine climbing for years, but, instead of sitting back on its laurels, Black Diamond decided to upgrade this tool for the next evolution. Keeping the same vibration-dampening carbon fiber material, the Cobra Ice Tool takes on a new custom-molded shape that makes it stiffer than ever before for reduced flex and precise one-swing sticks. Black Diamond pre-tapped the handle and shaft to easily accept the included two-position, leashless attachments, and you can add an Android leash for big rigs when you'd rather be clipped to your tools.
