Not my toys but does anyone know what these Charlet Moser tools are called?  From back when ergo was not.  

I thought they were called Captain Hooks or something but didn't find anything on Google.

Looks like Charlet tools with Trango Madame Hook handles. The handle in his left hand says Trango.

This is just one day late, but still.

The Charlet Moser axes were a cool idea .They could be dis-assembled into 'components'; short shafts, light weight,  they would fit into a shoe box. This was Ideal for traveling. Somewhere in the mid '90s, when  these tools came out, I bought a pair, stripped them down into travel mode and shipped them as a valentines day gift to my girlfriends Office.

I'll try to add some pix

Nice to see I'm not the only one to think ice tools are a perfectly acceptable Valentine's day gift.  I surprised my wife with new Raptors a few years ago on Valentines.

I'd be happy as a clam if someone gave me a set of axes for v-day!

Bang for the buck... (no pun intended) the Raptors are an awesome tool.
