Black Diamond Cobra Hammer Description

  • Brand : Black Diamond
  • Season : Wintery!
  • Code : BDI COBHAM
  • Packaged Weight : 1.2KG
  • Probably the sexiest looking ice axe on the planet, the Cobra is designed for hard water ice climbs and technical alpine routes - it also makes a great Scottish Mixed axe.
    The lightweight carbon fibre shaft gives it the most clearance of any of BD's tools without sacrificing balance. It also reduces the overall weight by over 100 grams over the previous version. The carbon fibre shaft keeps the majority of the tool's weight in the head. Carbon fibre also provides vibration-free placements with minimal flex, a damp, balanced swing and wrist-flick first time placements. A rubber grip is built in to the Cobra's lower shaft for a secure, precise grip. A bonus of all this is that the shaft and grip stay warmer than on metal-shafted axes and so do your hands.
    Comes equipped with Micro Hammer, Laser Pick, removable Fang and Strike.
    A personal favourite of one of the keenest winter climbers at Needle Sports and much used for Scottish mixed and water ice.
    The shaft is 'T' Rated.
    Approximate Weight: 588g.
    NB Price is per single hammer.

      Fabulous axes that are really comfortable to use (and keep your hands warmer as the shafts aren't metal!). I use them leashless but with a double spring leash system which attach to something I have rigged up on the small nut that protrudes from half way up the shaft - the leash doesnt get in the way then, whichever end of the axe you are using. I also have them fitted with the large adze and hammer, much better for hacking ledges and hitting pegs respectively, and great for torquing in cracks. I regularly climb up to UK grade VI and have done so for the last 25 years and these are the best axes I have ever used. Stephen Reid (Needle Sports Staff)
