Petzl hammers, one last time!

Seen on some of the most experienced Petzl tools in the world.  And much more still to come this season.  A truly classic and well tested design worthy of the Nomic.  

Summit ice slopes, N. Face of the Eiger and CT hammers.
 

The current production run of CT hammers is not ready yet.  But will be sent for heat treat mid December 2012.  Likely the last batch I will produce.  Certainly the last batch till at least fall of 2013.  They are another generation better and even more user friendly!   No dicking around on the fit. Simply bolt them on with the current Petzl picks. A new stronger and more durable design. These will fit perfectly on the old or new Noimcs.  They will also fit on the new Quarks and new Ergo with the current production picks.  Milled one at a time from tool steel and then heat treated to specific hammer hardness. Full head coverage, 4mm thick and only 32g per hammer with little effect on the tools balance and swing weight.

NOTE! October 22, 2012 the last batch  was being mailed out.....inventory lasted  till  Nov. 9. 

No longer in production, sorry.

Hi Dane,

I have 1st generation nomics and cascade picks that seem to have no room for a hammer in the back. Do you offer a service to shave the picks to make the hammers fit? Whats the cost?

Thanks,
Jeff (new england)

Hi Jeff, prior to Petzl finally offering the new Nomic I did cut the picks. Now with picks easily available from Petzl I have found it much easier and cheaper for everyone to just sell hammers that fit their newest Nomic picks. Easy enough for you though as the newest Nomic picks will bolt right on your older Nomic. And the Cold Thistle hammer will match those picks and your tools perfectly.

Hi Dane,

Are these still available?

Dane said...

Yes, I am still shipping them and have a few more left from the last production batch. Typically they go out the same day as I get the Pay Pal $.

Hey Dane! What's the plan for any Fall '13 production run? I'm assuming you are out of stock at the moment?!?
