Rare Vintage Swiss Attenhofer "STUBAI" Ice Axe
This very scarce antique Stubai ice axe was manufactured by Adolf Attenhofer who was better known for his skis and the "ALPINA" ski bindings which were the least expensive and thus the most common bindings on the market during the 1920's. The ice axe is in very good condition and the metal has been cleaned up & polished with no rust. Engraved on one side is "ATTENHOFER ZURICH" and "STUBAI" on the other side. The wooden shaft with a the original leather hand strap is also clean with no dents or cracks. The previous Swiss owner actually climbed the Matterhorn with it! Adolf Attenhofer won the Swiss Ski Championships in 1917 while working developing skis at Ettinger Skis. This a very rare collectible Ice Axe for the antique collector or for displaying in your home or ski lodge.
