Mr P, 20 odd Chouinard axes or just 20 odd axes? The Chouinard must be worth a bit, looks mint.
And the man himself Yvon is still with us. :D

I've a total of 3 axes, 2 Mountain Technology Vertige climbing axes and one walking axe I made. Made the head from spring steel with an alloy shaft about 25 years ago.

20ish axes but around half are Chouinard Zeros and Frosts, plus a couple of mk1 Lowe Hummingbirds :D
I did sell a few Zeros for an awful lot of dollars a few years back, one in particular went stellar - I was gobsmacked at the time but also quite happy - paid off me overdraft :D

I let one go every now and again when I need beer tokens or petrol money :xmas-wink:

Always like the early Vertiges but kept my Chacal/Barracuda and terrors instead. Had a new pick fitted by the man himself at the Peck establishment/shed (cant call it a factory) in Leicester where they were made around 1986, nice guy too.

I was going to ask you why you had so many axes till I remembered we're on RetroBike, we don't do just the one or two of anything. :lol:

Always wanted Chacal/Barracudas because I thought they looked good but no money to spare at the time.
It was Hamish MacInnes the designed/made the terrors/terrordactyls(?) wasn't it? Had a mate who had a pair, they looked rather industrial and short to me with really steep angled picks.
