Taking its name from a northern Kenyan desert wilderness, the Didi Galgalu from Helle Knives is a robust full tang fixed blade made to handle everything on an outdoor adventure. Developed in collaboration with transcontinental adventure documentary team Voetspore, the Didi Galgalu pairs a large and capable 12C27 Sandvik blade with substantial and sustainable Kebony handles to make a formidable cutting tool on which you can rely.

Brand new, direct from Helle Knives.

Blade: The large full tang drop point blade is solid 12C27 Sandvik stainless steel providing a low maintenance and durable blade that is reliable for hard use. Broad and thin this blade has a solid heft while offer excellent slicing performance from the razor sharp modified Scandi grind. A small micro bevel makes the edge strong and easy to sharpen. The stunning polished satin finish enhances corrosion resistance and visual appeal.

Handle: Brass rivets attach the Kebony scales to the full tang over contrasting liners. Kebony is a sustainable bio-treated wood with the durability, look, and performance of premium hardwood. The generous handle fills the hand and has a forward choil for controlled cutting close to the blade with full grip near the pommel for heavy cutting.

Carries via a hand stitched Nordic style leather belt sheath.

Sandvik 12C27: A modified AISI 420, Sandvik 12C27 has around 4 times the carbon for higher hardness. Thanks to a high purity and fine carbide microstructure, this steel delivers good corrosion resistance, high hardness and exceptional toughness, allowing for razor sharpness.

As with all natural materials these handles are unique. Appearance varies from piece to piece.
