Much like the larger Gro, the Spire (Norwegian for "to sprout") the Helle Spire provides a robust handle and razor sharp blade for exceptional woodcarving performance with carefully considered safety features for novice users. The Spire has a blunt tip Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade and dark dyed birch handle.

Brand new, direct from Helle Knives.

Blade: The drop point blade is small and easy to control for novice users with a blunt tip for added safety. Equipped with a modified Scandinavian grind the solid Sandvik 12C27 stainless steel blade has less flex compared to a laminated steel for greater control. The razor sharp edge delivers clean, easy cuts while the polished satin finish offers visual appeal. A small micro bevel edge makes the Scandi grind more robust and easier to sharpen and maintain.

Handle: Dark dyed birch wood is hand shaped and finished for a handle that fills the hand for a secure grip. The size is ideally suited to smaller hands delivering a three-finger grip for adults. A prominent forward guard provides added safety for beginners and supervised children looking to safely develop their knife handling skills and carving technique.

Carries via a snap closure, hand stitched Nordic style natural 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.
