1920's Swiss "Geb. Andenmatten" Ice Axe

Swiss "Gebr. Andenmatten" Ice Axe

This very scarce antique ice axe was manufactured  by "Gebr. Andenmatten" (Andenmatten brothers) in Saas Almegel, Valais, Switzerland. The name "Mischabel" is engraved on one side of the head and  on the other side it has an indistinguishable logo/name (most probably the sport shop which sold them in Lausanne, Switzerland) and underneath, you can barely make out the name of the city “Lausanne”. It has been cleaned, polished and ready to decorate your home or mountain chalet with.

The Andenmatten  brothers started making axes in 1918 and continued with a second family generation until the early 1970's. It is in particularly good shape with some normal usage wear including a few dings. Their “Mischabel” ice axes were named after the mountain range above Saas Almagel. Saas Almagel is a little Alpine village in the Valais area of Switzerland, just a mountain pass away from its rather more illustrious neighbour, Zermatt.
