70s CAMP Chouinard-Frost Wooden Ice Axe Vintage Eispickl Piolet Made in Italy
1970s Camp Interalp Chouinard-Frost Wooden Ice Axe (length: 59cm), Made in Premana, Italy. In 1969, Yvon Chouinard and Tom Frost, of Chouinard Equipment in Ventura, California, commissioned the Codega brothers to build an axe to their specifications.

CAMP designed and produced the "Chouinard Frost" a beautiful and modern ice axe that features a curved head for the first time. This axe, featured a hand forged, ground and polished chrome-nickle steel head and a hickory shaft, and has since been a mountaineering equipment classic in the both the US and in the Alps.

When Tom Frost left the company, the marking on the head was revised, omitting "Frost" from "Chouinard-Frost". This is a 2nd gen of the Chouinard axe two sets of teeth in the head and a hickory shaft.

By the single stamp of "Chouinard" we know it was one of the last production runs after Frost left GPIW in'75. So this one was made between Summer of'75 and summer of'78. It's been used and.

The axe was displayed on a wall and has a small screw hole and the remains of a screw in the shaft. It would look fantastic displayed on a wall and still fully functional.
