Helle Viking

$109.00

The Viking is a revision of a Helle classic that was produced as part of a fund-raiser for an around-the-world- cruise of a Viking longship. The knife is notable not only for it’s historical interest, but also as an excellent all around utility knife.

The blade is rather thick and made of laminated carbon steel. The black finish of the heat treatment is left on the sides for rustic look. The tang of the blade is peened over a diamond shaped washer. The handle is subtly shaped for comfort and control with a variety of grips. It comes with the traditional sheath that hangs from a thong.

Description

In the world of handmade Helle knives the Viking stands out. Instead of the normal triple laminated stainless steel blade the Viking boasts a full carbon steel blade. This gives the Viking a blade that sharpens easily and stays sharper longer. Originally designed to pay homage to the nordic raiders the Viking is an extremely versatile blade. Team the Viking with a smaller skinning knife like the Besseggen or a Havalon blade for the ultimate combination of strength and versatility.
