1970's Splitkein Bass Vintage Touring Skis

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.

Splitkein ski factory was established by Peter Ostby in 1935 and taken over by Laila Schou Nilsen in 1947. In 1950, Splitkein moved the factory to Honefoss. In addition to skiing, the factory produced garden furniture, camping equipment and yachts.

This is a really clean pair of Splitkein skis, one of my favorites made in Norway.
