ICE SCREW SHARPENING

ICE SCREW SHARPENING

Off-season is the perfect time to tune up your ice screws!  If you've ever gotten pumped out trying to get a dull screw to bite into the ice while leading up an NEI 5 on a cold Adirondack day then you can appreciate having a rack of nice sharp screws.

 

If you've got the skills to do it yourself then check out this Ice Screw Sharpening Procedure, but if you would rather trust your screws to a skilled hand that's been doing it for 20 years then we can bring them back to life.

  • Sharpened to an agressive tooth profile for fast and effecient placement.

  • All hand-filed so no over-heating of metal.

  • Fast turn-around (24-48 hours).

  • Black Diamond, Grivel, Petzl, Omega Pacific 

 

PRICING

Touch-Up $4.00 / screw for screws that are just a bit dull with no major flat spots
Full Re-Profile $8.00 / screw for screws that have hit rock resulting in significant flat spots

ICE TOOL and CRAMPON SHARPENING

Have your picks and front points professionally sharpened for first time sticks, minimal ice displacement, and easy removal.

If you have Black Diamond tools then you probably have experienced pick bounce, shattered ice, and then find them difficult to remove from the ice, all of which is attributed to their bad pick design.  Having the picks re-profiled will dramatically change the performance in hard and brittle ice and transform your Fuels, Cobras, or Vipers into awesome tools on par with anything else out there.
