Building on the ancient Norwegian knifemaking traditions, Helle knives reflect the robust, rugged and beautiful qualities of nature in their knives. Using triple laminated stainless steel for unrivalled combination of strength and edge-holding, these knives are as practical as they are beautiful. A joy to own and a joy to use.
These knives from famous Norwegian knifemakers Helle are not just a purchase of a practical knife, although they are certainly that! Owning a knife like this is like owning a piece of the Nordic outdoors heritage. Consider the arctic curly birch used for the hand crafted handle. The finest quality leather, traditionally vegetable tanned and shaped into the typically Norwegian style sheath. Couple this with the finest quality triple-laminated steel blade and a design that sits perfectly in the hand, and you have a tool that is hard to rival. Helle blades are made from triple laminated steel - a sandwich of Sandvik with two layers of 18/8 stainless steel to produce a blade with great edge holding ability and strength. Each Helle knife is packaged in a handsome presentation tube, complete with a linen cleaning cloth, making them an excellent gift for any discerning outdoorsman. The Fjellkniven has a drop point blade, ideal for skinning and detailed cutting tasks.

The semi-full tang provides the extra strength associated with bushcraft knives. The tang is exposed on the top and pommel end, but is covered by the wood of the handle on the finger side. This protects the fingers from direct contact with the steel in cold weather. The drop point style blade is made of triple laminated stainless steel that provides excellent edge holding toughness and ease for sharpening. The handle has a bit of a finger guard to help keep your hand off the edge when slippery. The handle shape on the updated version of the Temagami allows a better control of the knife when holding in more positions. The Temagami comes with a Scandinavian style pouch sheath retaining the knife securely without the need for snaps or straps.
