More info

  • A real viking knife
  • Tripple laminated carbon Steel Blade
  • Handle of birch wood (Curly Birch)
  • Leather sheath

The blade is rather thick and made of laminated carbon steel. The black finish of the heat treatment is left on the sides for rustic look. The tang of the blade is peened over a diamond shaped washer. The handle is subtly shaped for comfort and control with a variety of grips. It comes with the traditional sheath that hangs from a thong.

The differences between a Helle knife and other knives are many. The biggest difference lies in our triple laminated stainless steel blade. The core is made of high alloy steel which gives it a lasting, razor-sharp edge. This harder layer cannot however exclude the threat of rust or breakage.

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.
