I have for sale two old climbing tools:
Thought I'd post here in case there are any lurking collectors.
Happy to also have comments from anyone who has more info on what these things are too! The latter looks to be for placing/removing pegs, and the former somewhere between that and an ice-axe.
Both peg hammers, also used mine today but for knocking in tent pegs, over the years it's had more use then my other hammers, roofing, camping and not forgetting climbing.
In terms of shape the modern hammer looks more like the Stubai one than the Chouinard.
Scroll down here (from about halfway down) for all the details of them and say goodbye to the rest of the day !
(In case anyone else’s interest in piqued, auctions on the tools end on Wednesday afternoon.)
