The Besseggen is named after a famous mountain ridge in Norway.

It’s a stout work knife with a triple laminated stainless steel blade. Wide at the base with a generous curved shape. Its wide handle works is comfortable and esthetic. The leather sheath has a tab to engage the stud on the pommel.

Maintenance
Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness as a lifelong outdoors companion. But it is still important to take care of your knife and its sheath.

  • The Handle. Dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally.
  • The Sheath. The leather needs to be impregnated occasionally with colourless impregnation agent (grease or wax) to keep supple. Dry the sheath carefully in room temperature if it becomes wet.
  • The Blade. Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally.

Sharpening
Use a diamond tool or a wet stone for sharpening. Place the knife bevel flat to the sharpening tool and work the entire blade. Work one side until you can feel a slight burr on the opposite side. Switch side and repeat the procedure until you feel the burr on the first side. You have now established an edge. Remove the burr by stroking the blade gently over the sharpening surface on both sides, as if cutting very thin slices. Keep the bevel flat towards the sharpener and move from side to side until the burr is gone.

If the blade is very dull or damaged, use a fine-grained grindstone and plenty of water and sharpen until you have a raw edge. Use much cooling liquid and never sharpen on a dry stone. A hot-ground edge looses its heat treatment and ruins the blade.

Short little perfection...

This is a shorter knife from Helle, but it doesn't deliver any less. It is absolutely a gorgeous little knife. As others have stated, it just feels good. You want this in your hand. You want to use it. Ergonomically, it fits like a glove. Balanced. Perfect for maneuvering and doing all you ask of it. As is customary from Helle, the quality, craftsmanship, look, feel, etc., are all second to none. Built to last, built to hand down to your grandkids' grandkids' grandkids. Highly recommended.
