Andermatten GBR.

h1 classbiography Andermatten GBR.h1The old Swiss family was one of the first to offer guided treks in the alpine regions with Geb Andenmatten ( Andenmatten Brothers) having a large blacksmith business. It was here around 1918 that the brothers began making ice axes which were sold to the local mountain guides visiting tourists and the Swiss Army. The inscriptions at the beginning were all in capital letters with GEB.ANDENMATTEN on the top SCHWEIZ (Switzerland) on the middle and SAAS-ALMAGEL on the bottom. GEB. stands for Gebrder and means brother. In the 1930s the inscription changed and the letters were written using lowercase letters and the upper GEB. was then spelt Gebr. Their Mischabel Ice axes were named after the mountain range above Saas Almagel. Saas Almagel is a little Alpine village in the Valais area of Switzerland just a mountain pass away from its rather more illustrious neighbour Zermatt.
