Vintage "STUBAI" Ice Axe
This antique ice axe was manufactured in the late 60's in the Stubai valley, Austria. It is new and previously was Swiss military issue. A small Swiss cross is engraved on one side of the adze and on the other side marked "STUBAI".
In 1742, Tradinghouse Volderauer was established by a group of local blacksmiths living and working in the Stubai Valley. These master craftsmen later founded the Stubai Tooling Corporation in 1897. Even though the company can only trace its beginnings to the mid 1700's, the Stubay Valley has a long and rich history of blacksmiths dating back to the 14th century.
