Grivel Axe-Mount Shovel Blade

Recommended Posts

Anyone used one of these ? Can attach onto an axe with a straight shaft.


Jim Nelson's shop has some on the wall. Looks a little flimsy, but if someone has had good luck with it I'd like to hear.

I still have an old BD Alpine shovel -- the blade works very well with most ice axes, and saves lots of weight. Super strong too so no to need to worry about damage from prying.


This seems to be the same idea, but the blade is all plastic except for that small metal insert. And it weighs only a couple ounces less than the lightest all-metal shovels from Voile and BCA.
