Canadian Alpine Tools are Handcrafted and Awesome

Canadian Alpine Tools was founded by David Glavind, a blacksmith for 30 years who has been making handcrafted hammers and pitons for climbers for decades.

Glavind has been taking full advantage the Canadian Rockies as an ice and rock climber for almost 20 years.

When his passion for fine metal work and the alpine suffer-fest collided, Canadian Alpine Tools was born.

“Whether you’re choss wrangling in the Southern Alberta summer or crushing your way through a winter in the Ghost, Canadian Alpine Tools has you covered,” said Glavind.

“In our workshop, we refine and re-imagine tradition to bring you to the cutting edge of alpine protection.”
