Brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle started knife production in the old forge on their farm in Holmedal, Norway, in 1932. Then, as today, much of the production is done manually. The philosophy remains the same: Quality craftsmanship is best preserved by skilled craftsmen – those with extensive experience and knowledge who still take pride in making each and every Helle knife unique.
Many Helle Knives have a unique triple laminated stainless steel blade. The core is made of high alloy steel which gives it a lasting, razor-sharp edge. The outer two layers are of stainless steel (18/8) to protect the blade against breakage and corrosion, while the high carbon core still provides a superb cutting edge.
Knives are tastefully presented in a special presentation cardboard ‘tube’ box, with a sheath, information and a soft polishing cloth. Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness as a lifelong outdoors companion.
