Helle Knives Temagami CA Les Stroud Carbon Steel Curly Birch Semi Full Tang Fixed Blade Knife
A 2011 design collaboration between Les Stroud (a.k.a. Survivorman) and Helle Knives, the Temagami CA is a versatile semi-full tang knife with a blend of modern and traditional design that produces a truly exceptional outdoor cutting tool. The Temagami CA has a blade of triple laminated carbon steel (H3LCA) and curly birch handle.
Brand new, direct from Helle Knives.
Blade: The full sized drop point blade tapers to a fine point for a versatile shape that handles fine tasks and heavy work with ease. The 3/4 full tang make this blade solid and reliable whatever the duty. A razor sharp modified Scandinavian delivers exceptional slicing power with a small micro bevel for greater durability and ease of sharpening. The high polish satin finish gives enhanced corrosion resistance and a classic look.
Handle: Heavy brass rivets attach the handsome curly birchwood scales to the 3/4 width full. The semi-full tang construction offers the increased durability of a full tang with enhanced cold weather performance. Warm and secure in hand, the handle provides a full four finger grip with generous pommel swell and forward guard for ease of draw and added safety.
Carries via a traditional Nordic hand stitched leather belt sheath.
H3LCA: Helle Triple Laminated Carbon Steel, similar to Japanese San Mai, has tough 18/8 stainless cladding on the outside protecting the high carbon steel core. This delivers razor sharpness, high hardness and exceptional toughness. The stainless cladding has good corrosion resistance while the core requires added care. Carbon steel offers a unique feel in use and sharpening.
As with all natural materials these handles are unique. Appearance varies from piece to piece.
