Description

Show Description

With a curly birch handle that feels like an extension of your hand, the Eggen is a quality tool designed for years of use. Helle’s laminated, 3-layer steel creates a rugged, drop-point blade that holds its edge and is easy to sharpen when the time comes. Featuring a traditional Scandi grind, the edge excels at bushcraft and other outdoor tasks. A moulded leather sheath keeps the knife comfortably within reach when you're out in the field.

  • Helle laminated steel sandwiches a hard steel between two softer steel sides, giving the blade an excellent mix of toughness and edge retention without making it hard to sharpen.
  • Scandinavian (Scandi) grind excels at bushcraft tasks.
  • Handsome handle carved out of curly birch wood.
  • Sculpted guard keeps fingers safe from the edge while in use.
  • The leather sheath places the knife right on the belt-line, keeping it close at hand.
  • Since 1932, Helle knives have been made in a small Norwegian village nestled between the mountains and fjords. Each Helle knife has passed through experienced hands on its way to your belt.
  • Each knife has its own personality, and variations in colour and patterns mean no two are alike.
