Blade: The mid-sized triple laminated steel blade comes with a razor sharp modified Scandinavian grind, strong enough for heavy work with excellent performance and versatility. The small micro bevel makes the edge tougher and easier to sharpen for maintenance. A high polish finish enhances corrosion resistance while the subtle false edge swedge adds visual appeal and utility.
Handle: Through tang construction is practical and lightweight, hand shaped to feel like a functional tool, comfortable in almost any grip you can use. Stunning curly birchwood pairs with reindeer antler and green dyed leather for a timeless style and durability making this heirloom piece a tool to pass along for generations to come.
Carries via a hand stitched Nordic style 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.
