1960's Head Master Vintage Metal Skis

In 1947, Howard Head was an aircraft engineer for Glenn L. Martin Company in Baltimore, and went skiing for the first time. Head was frustrated with the quality of the clumsy and heavy wooden skis, which made skiing very difficult for beginners. He decided to develop a lighter and more efficient ski that could make skiing much easier for everyone. He left his job and devoted all his time and energy to developing the skis and supported himself with earnings from poker. These early metal skis has Marker toes and Tyrolia heel, made in Timonium, Maryland and engraved with the name Frank Mansell.
