    Aggressive versatility for ice and rock.

    Grivel's Carbon Tech Machine Ice Tool is an aggressive axe suitable for any terrain, whether you're swinging up single pitch pillars or trekking all-day alpine lines. Its Ice blade uses a sharp angle and a long first tooth for hooking icy edges or torquing in rocky cracks, and you can switch out the Ice blade for Grivel's Mix blade (not included) for more versatility. The dual-density handle has multiple grip options to extend your reach when needed, or shake out when you get pumped, and there's a subtle spike at the bottom for cleaning chossy ice. Grivel's Cyclops eye at the head accommodates carabiners for easy clipping.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I spent a week climbing on the Carbon Tech Machines in Ouray recently. It took me a few runs to get used to these guys. They have a similar geometry to the Nomic and are in the same category of vertical ice tools to that and the X-Dream, but the weight distribution is a bit different and seems to be more in the handle than head. Initially, all my swings were a bit hard, causing the blade to go really deep every time. After I figured it out, I was able to be precise with very little effort. The long pick does indeed make for great hooking and the handle is very comfortable. The pick seems to be quite durable as well, holding up nicely over the week. I'm excited to keep using these and test them out in more variable terrain.

    There are three versions of this tool:
    - ice pick
    - ice plus pick with hammer
    - ice plus pick with adze

    Since the picture on the web site is not even of this tool (the picture is of the aluminum Tech Machine), it is hard to know exactly which version of the Tech Machine Carbon is being sold. Could somebody please clarify?
