The Viking is a revision of a classic Helle knife. This version was released as part of a fundraising campaign to take a traditional Viking ship on a journey around the world. The handle is made of beautiful birch wood. It is hand-shaped, polished and oiled to give the handle its unique character. The blade is full-tang, which means that the steel by runs through to the end of the handle. The material of the blade is laminated 3-ply carbon steel.
The knife comes with a traditional Scandinavian 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.
