A wonderful old wooden ice axe. It features a neutral tip clearance pick, solid wooden shaft, curved adze, wrist leash and traditionally shaped spike.

Frenchman, J Charlet, started making ice axes in Chamonix, in the shadow of Mont Blanc, around 1880. 

The Charlet factory was handed down from father to son for many decades until combining with another Petzl to become Charlet Moser.  Charlet Moser was purchased by Petzl in 2000.
