Description of DMM Anarchist 50cm Ice Axe with HammerThe Anarchist is a leashless tool, this style of climbing allows you to make more gymnastic moves, shake out, hang an axe over a shoulder and swap hands making sideways moves a doddle.The Anarchist and Rebel are the only axes in the world that are hot forged and the reasons why these axes work so well is best described in the way DMM manufactures them.In hot forging the shaft they have to wind the forging presses up to 800 tonnes of pressure, to flow the aluminium into the unique signature I Beam structure. This allows DMM to distribute the weight and strength to make a perfectly balanced tool.DMM also hot forges the Type B Hedgehog topped pick from EN24 steel, a process which allows the intricate design this top end axe demands improving strength and ice penetration.The hammer is investment cast allowing this very intricate 3D design which keeps weight to a minimum and strength to a premium.The dual compound handles and adjustable trigger fingers are injection moulded which creates an ergonmic handle that improves precision, comfort and support minimizing pump and maximizing enjoyment.FeaturesAnarchist 650g 50cm
