I nipped into Go Outdoors at lunchtime today, and had a quick browse of their collection of ice axes. While I was idly browsing, the guy stacking the shelves pottered over and warned me that if I wanted a 'serious' ice axe I would need to buy a pair, as he wasn't allowed to sell me just one.
He said I could buy a single walking axe - I think this rule only came into effect if there was the option of adze or hammer (so you had to buy one of each).
I pointed out that this was a crazy rule, but he was insistent - has anyone else come across this before?
