Details

The Helle Fossekallen (Norway’s national bird) is a smaller version of the Eggen that retains the traditional style and functionality of its larger brother. Hand finished to perfection, the solid select curly birch handle has a modern forward guard for added safety and houses the familiar drop point blade of Helle Triple Laminated Stainless Steel. For a lightweight yet capable blade the Fossekallen is an excellent choice.

Brand new, direct from Helle Knives.

Blade: Equipped with a razor sharp modified Scandinavian grind the laminated stainless steel drop point blade is versatile for tasks large and small. A small micro bevel edge makes the Scandi grind more robust and easier to sharpen and maintain.

Handle: Lightweight through tang construction is reliable and comfortable, especially in cold environments. The hand shaped and finished solid curly birchwood handle is warm, visually appealing and feels like a functional tool, comfortable in almost any grip. The generous index guard provides added safety. As with all Helle knives, the exceptional quality makes this an heirloom piece you can pass down for generations.

Carries via a hand stitched snap closure leather belt sheath.

H3LSS: Helle Triple Laminated Stainless Steel, similar to Japanese San Mai, has tough 18/8 stainless cladding on the outside protecting the high carbon stainless core. Helle uses a proprietary steel similar to Sandvik 12c27. This delivers razor sharpness, high hardness, exceptional toughness and good corrosion resistance.

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