Ice tool ID please?

Nice tools (the furthest), no clue what they are though, they are probably Alex Txicon's.

Looks like Kailas prototypes. I'm guessing that isn't the model name, but an actual prototype. Some guy named Sean Tucker has pictures of them on Picasa. Image

After a bit of messing around. I suspect it may be something related to this:
http://www.kailas.com.cn/cn/html/product/201101271153446.html
Kailas seems to be a Chinese company which makes a lot of similar products to some big name brands, so I am not sure if there is someone else also making the same design.

They look like the E-climb Cryo to me -- saw them in the climbing shop in Ouray last winter, and there have been a few articles about them over the years. I believe the company is based in Spain.

That is what they are Rob... good call.

Nice stuff btw. Been looking at their products for the past two years. The MSRP$$$ is rather reasonable as well. Might have to look into getting a pair of these guys.

PS: I'd be rather skeptical as to the other "Chinese" stuff. Just my very bias opinion.

Let's see. Lead and cadmium in children's toys. Counterfeit UL labels on light fixtures. Corrosive drywall. Can't imagine why you'd be skeptical. :shock:
