Helle Taiga Knife

by HELLE
$139.00

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.

Everyone should own one.

Many people who live in rural Scandinavia have a version of this knife. It is a timeless utilitarian tool. This particular design is made for larger hands and hard work.

You can use this knife all day long and not get hot spots in your hands. The handle is superb. The knife is well made and holds a fine edge.

The sheath is well made and holds the knife well.

I have been using this knife for tasks around the homestead and woodlot, as well as bushcrafting projects, for a few years, and it has exceeded my expectations. Despite having a rat tail tang, this knife batons small pieces of wood well, and has held up to strenuous work.

This is the best all-around knife that I own. If I was only going to have one knife, this would be it.
