I was asked by one of my returning customers to make a special EDC tactical ice pick.
The customer's requests were:
It has to be low profile design
The ice pick has to be made in titanium.
150 mm OAL
Two finger handle with good traction.
After some sketches and prototypes we had a winning design and this is the final result:
The ergonomic Black G10 handle scales provide extra grip control, traction and contact surface with the hand:
Low profile and easy to conceal (if needed):
If required the Dalton Ice Pick can be used as a last ditch / backup tactical push dagger:
"I have finally received my item. Excellent work, as always. I think adding the scales was the right call since it feels really good in hand with the extra thickness. Nailed the sheath as well." A.D
More information about the ice pick:
The ice pick is a pointed metal tool used to break, pick or chip at ice. The design consists of a sharp metal spike attached to a wooden handle. The tool's design has been relatively unchanged since its creation.
Originally considered an improvised weapon (an object that was not designed to be used as a weapon but can be put to that use and generally used for self-defense), ice picks have become a niche by itself inside the world of knife making.
