Just like the North Machine Carbon+ (only the blades differ) the ice version shares the geometry borne from the Takoon, Matrix, and Quantum series of axes and is intended more for cascade and "sport" climbing than the mountains as it has no adze or hammer. The shaft is “T” tested and is constructed from G Bone shape, carbon composite material and boasts the Ice blade, which is also “T” tested, meaning it can take a beating on the rock and rime but still provides secure and efficient ice placements.
The North machine Carbon is compatible with the Ice blade+ (designed more for the mountains as it has and adze and hammer) and the slightly thicker Mix blade which is ideal for Scottish mixed climbing and dry tooling.
