About the Product

Helle stores all wood for a minimum of one year in cold storage to allow the wood to dry slowly. Only when the wood has reached a specific humidity, they cut it in pieces for the next step in the drying process.
The triple laminated steel blades test 58-59 on the Rockwell scale, with the outer layer at 18/8 stainless steel specially developed by Helle and a Norwegian steel mill. Some models feature Sandvik steel and High Carbon blades.
All leather products are designed and made in-house at Helle, using high quality leather from selected partners. The making of a sheath is made with the same care as the making of our knives through the multi step processes by our craftsmen.
