Looking for ice axe parts and pieces?

Unlikely I suspect but you never know what might turn up if you ask.

I am looking for the spike and ferrule from an Camp-Interalp axe.  They made all the hand forged Chouinard Piolets and a good many axes for REI among others, as well as axes under their own trade name.

I am looking specifically for the wide style spike (pictured above) and steel or aluminum ferrule required to fix to a shaft.  Old and beaten is fine.  I can rehab them.  And I am willing to pay for what you might have plus the shipping.  I have no concern on the shaft or head condition or make and model.  Just need the correct style of period spike and ferrule.   Another version that would work is from a wood Chouinard  Zero which is still full width but a bit shorter and has a hole drilled midway along the spike.

Not from Camp-Interalp but even the composite shaft version would work

Grivel's version

If you have something I might use please send me an email.....

A huge thanks!   And hoping one will turn up.

I´m not sure, if this is the right place to put the link but could this be something new from Petzl.
Hope it works!

Since this is a post about spare parts... I have a Chouinard ice axe and was wondering if there are many replacement picks floating around (and how much I can expect to pay for one)

Do you have a picture of the original interface? Not the current one BD is using? Ebay?
