The GT is one of the larger knives in the Helle’s range. In spite its size, the weight is low because of the aluminum bolster and the absence of the pommel. The aluminum bolster does not only provide extra support during use, but also offers extra security because your hand does not come close to the edge. The handle is made of beautiful wavy birch. The handle is shaped, polished and oiled by hand to give it its unique character. The blade is full-tang, which means that the steel by runs through to the end of the handle. The blade is a hard stainless steel, laminated between two layers of 18/8 stainless steel. This core is sharpened incredibly sharp and is very easy to sharpen yourself.
The knife comes with belt sheath, made of leather.
When the handle and blade get wet, you should dry them off with a soft cloth. It is also advised to occasionally wax or oil the handle and blade.
The sheath should be treated every now and then with a colorless liquid (grease or wax) to keep it smooth. When the sheath has become moist it must be carefully dried at room temperature.
All knives by Helle are made and finished by hand. This can lead to subtle differences and makes each knife a unique masterpiece.
