These were my first post wood, w/screw on metal edge skis in the early 70's. I can't for the life of me remember who made them...and sadly they are long gone....the only skis I still don't have!
IIRC, by the late 60s most if not all of the high-end skis (i.e., the kind you skied if you owned a pair of buckle boots) had one-piece integrated (and in some special cases, variable cracked) edges. My first and only skis with screw-in edges were Alpines: $29 a pair in 1966, made in Japan, wood core, tupperware-quality plastic base. Pretty basic. So I'm guessing any 70s skis with screw-in edges were not any of the legendary or semi-legendary models from Volkl, Head, Hart, Kneissl, Kastle, Fischer, Dynamic, Dynastar, etc. Maybe they were an entry-level model?
The only "K" name that comes to mind, other than Kneissl and Kastle, is Kastinger. I know they made boots because I had a pair, but I don't think they made skis. Then again, I could be wrong.
