Helle Algonquin 78 outdoor knife
The Helle 78 Algonquin is a compact, fixed knife that weighs next to nothing. The handle is made from dark oak wood combined with curly birch. The pommel of the handle is enhanced with a button. With it the knife is secured in the sheath to make sure it won't fall out. The blade is enhanced with a stainless steel core, laminated between two layers of 18/8 stainless steel. This core has a razor-sharp edge and is easy to sharpen.
The knife comes with a traditional Scandinavian leather sheath. This sheath is not enhanced with a belt loopt, but comes with a long leather cord. As such you can carry the knife around your neck as a neck knife.
Both the handle and the blade need to be dried with a soft towel if they get wet. We also recommended occasionally adding wax or oil.
The sheath should occasionally be impregnated with a colourless agent (grease or wax) to make sure it stays flexible. Dry the sheath carefully at room temperature if it gets wet.
All Helle knives are made and finished by hand. As such each knife is a unique masterpiece because every pattern is different.
