Description

Show Description

Originally produced as a fundraiser for an around-the-world cruise on a Viking long ship, the Viking knife is just as useful today as it was 1000 years ago. Using a 3-layer carbon steel, the rugged blade retains its edge well and is easy to sharpen when the time comes. The barrel-shaped curly birch handle is comfortable in a variety of grips. A simple leather sheath keeps the knife close at hand while you're 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.
  • Comfortable barrel-shaped handle is sculpted out of curly birch.
  • Leather sheath is embossed with traditional designs and hangs on a leather strap, placing the knife below the belt-line.
  • 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.
