Topic - using your axe to remove snow build up on crampons

Keiran.A - on 19 Jun 2014

hi guys
it seems a lot of manufacturers are saying you shouldn't use their axes for tapping your crampons to remove snow build up. why not?

is it just to reduce damage to the crampons or the axe, say the anodising or rubber plastic/grip. with newer manufacturing techniques and thinner/light material, are the shaft more prone to denting

is it because they think they might get a few extra converts to anti balling plates, dont imagine there are many people left to convert.

any real reason?k
