    CONVERTS TO ICE AXE, FOR THE WEIGHT CONSCIOUS /

    The Shaxe Speed Avalanche Shovel and Ice Axe is our lightest combo product for ski mountaineering. This rescue shovel comes with an interchangeable ice axe head for Type 1 (Basic) ice axes. Saves weight and space in your pack by eliminating redundant shaft for separate ice axe. Great addition to your spring/summer skiing arsenal. Shovel still operational when switched to axe mode. Includes hardware to utilize the blade and shaft to make a rescue sled with K2 skis (or any skis with holes in tip and tail).

    The smooth blade allows for shaving down clean snow pit walls and contains holes for use as a snow anchor.
