Description
 
Splitkein literally means "split cane" in Norwegian, referring to the laminations of the ski. The truly complex laminated skis didn't hit the market until 1939, when chemists invented a glue strong enough to hold the various laminations together permanently. These skis were constructed with thin layers of wood that were glued together in narrow strips called "cane" throughout the entire length of the ski.

This is a great little pair of kids skis from the 40s that have held up well with age. The two different wood textures play really nicely off one another; these would certainly look great hung up just about anywhere!

Made in Norway.
