Helle Knives??
« on: September 19, 2019, 10:04:02 PM »
was out and about the other day, and saw a knife on display that i fell in love with at the gear store.

ive always regarded Helle knives as quality steel, although i have not used them, i suppose its a poor assumption that because it is Norwegian that the metal is good. i have a soft spot for Scandinavian steel as my grandpa was a Swede and got me hooked on the outdoors, so to me there is some heritage wrapped up in having Nordic iron as my go to tool in the woods.

i currently carry a Mora which is carbon steel, but rusts up easy, but takes an edge very well. its a cheap knife, 20$ or so, but has served me well.

i like the Helle Viking because of feel, and finish, but, i dont know anything about the metal or have any experiance with the brand, but, they are sure good looking. i realize without a guard on it, the risk of getting cut is a little higher, but, still love the look.... as with many things i fall in love with the image of, it usually turns out to be a disapointment, but, helle has always had very very good looking blades.

Mora Garberg gets good reviews, and it comes in stainless.

The PKS Scorpion gets great reviews and is a high carbon steel blade. I think that's what I'm going to buy at some point. You want that high carbon steel in a bushcraft knife. Looks like that Helle knife is a carbon laminate steel.


" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
