62-54-59 is the sidecut width in millimeters. You can compare this to the Fischer E99: 66-54-61
Waxless base, so you don't necessarily need grip wax to get a kick, you use the mechanical friction of the scales on the bottom against the snow to get the purchase you need to kick forward.
Depending on your weight, a good woods cruising ski. Will take some skill to learn how to turn them if you are new to telemark.
Karhu was a good ski company that made good skis. There is no reason to put them in the garbage, but they are probably not worth much if selling is your goal ($100 or less IF IF IF you can find the customer, MY OPINION ONLY).
Thanks for the good pictures
For now, pull the binding and mount on a shorter, medium width ski. You will learn much faster. The optimum mount position for turns is further forward than for striding by the way.
