For heading into the cold, deep and steep of northern lands only the very best snow sword will do. Bataleon crafted the North with their highest-end materials and chiseled into a directional 3BT shape. It bears fine German steel edges to slice through any snow condition and their Swiss wood Very Light core for the utmost strength to weight ratio. There's more beneath its cloak though, it has two carbon strips running lengthwise near the rails for precise edge bite, power and potent pop. and Portuguese cork slabs atop the core to smooth out high speed vibration. They also put a 23mm wide sealed Bamboo stringer down the center so you can create a DIY splitboard without damagin the core. IT's finished off with reactive bamboo sidewalls and a super tough sintered base to excel in the cold climes and terrain of your journey.
