You can buy replacement blades(?) for ice axes from the manufacturer, or from their local distributor. For instance Petzl (http://www.petzl.com/en/outdoor/ice-axes) or their local distributor Eiger Equipment

Have you been in touch with Kevin Shields?

He might be able to offer you some advice about the design.

Eiger Equipment are the local distributors of Petzl gear and they will sell what you are looking for, just find a pick you like and buy it.

They also have a Facebook page called "Petzl South Africa"
Happy climbing
