Show Description

What makes a Helle knife special? Natural handle material? Check – beautiful curly birch scales that fit perfectly in your hand. Classic grind? Check – outfitted with the iconic Scandi grind. Quality steel? Check – like all Helle knives, the Kletten’s blade uses their classic laminated steel. Tipping the scales at only 84g this EDC powerhouse performs way above its weight class.

  • Laminated steel sandwiched between softer steel sides for toughness and edge retention, that's still easy to sharpen.
  • Scandinavian (Scandi) grind excels at everyday tasks.
  • Handle scales are carved out of curly birch wood.
  • Sculpted guard keeps fingers safe from the edge.
  • Lined lanyard tube for your personalized lanyard.
  • Time-tested lock-back design is easy to operate and keeps the blade in place when in use.
  • Simple and reliable nail-nick blade access.
  • Helle knives have been made in a small Norwegian village since 1932. Created by craftsman who take pride in their work. Each knife has passed through experienced hands on its way to your pocket.
  • Natural materials, give each knife its own personality with variations in colour and patterns.
