Helle 70 Lappland

This knife is the all-purpose camp knife of the Sami people; some may add it to the category of a baby machete, quite hefty in the hand. The Sami people use them in their daily mobile life. This is a big knife with a non-laminated steel blade. The blade is fairly thin for effective slicing.

This knife is the all-purpose camp knife of the Sami people; some may add it to the category of a baby machete, quite hefty in the hand. The Sami people use them in their daily mobile life. This is a big knife with a non-laminated steel blade. The blade is fairly thin for effective slicing. The handle is made of birch with brass fittings. The Lappland comes with a traditional Scandinavian style leather sheath where the knife sits deep and secure.

Sandvik 12C27 is Sandvik's most well-rounded knife steel with excellent edge performance allowing razor sharpness, high hardness, exceptional toughness and good corrosion resistance.

To exploit the superb qualities of the high alloy steel Helle's added two layers of tough stainless steel(18/8) to protect the blade against breakage and corrosion, while the high carbon core still provides a superb cutting edge. This triple laminated stainless steel is unique to our knife blades.

Good craftsmanship requires the ability to create handle shapes which are consistent with the blade, fit comfortably in the hand, and add character to the knife. In most handles, Helle's use the hard and beautifully structured wood of curly grained birch, alone or in combination with matching materials, such as leather and stag horn.

A painstaking process of grinding, polishing and oiling is performed to offer full justice to the natural beauty of these materials.
