Gresshoppa literally means "Grasshopper" in Norwegian. Gresshoppa was a brand of AS Kolbjorn Knutsen & Co (KK) from Kristiana (Oslo) Norway. Founded in 1906, Kolbjorn Knutsen was a manufacturer of sporting and leather goods. In the 1930s, Kolbjorn Knutsen was one of the largest ski pole manufacturers in Norway. Ski poles were made from Tonkin bamboo, called such because it came from the Gulf of Tonkin in China. Knutsen provided ski poles for the Fritjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen's expeditions. In 1934, T. Mamem Company from Montreal was the sole agent of the AS Kolbjorn Knutsen & Co, selling Gresshoppa skis, bindings, and poles to skiers in Canada and the United States. These Vintage Nordic skis are in good condition and have Holmenkollen 3 pin bindings.
