The snowscopic, i think it’s called.
In interesting idea, but I agree with Shep. Limits the versatility of an ice axe. I think it also encourages people to lengthen the axe and use it as a walking stick, which defeats the purpose IMHO.
If you’re in terrain that truly warrants an ice axe, i think its better to carry poles and a separate axe, even if its super short, lightweight, ski mountaineering sorta deal.
