Helle Viking Knife
The Viking is the most rustic bushcraft knife from the Helle range, with its blackened steel and simple, yet effective design, the Helle Viking is a true modern classic. The Helle Viking outdoor knife is a revision of a Helle classic that was produced as part of a fund-raiser for an around-the-world- trip of a Viking long-ship.
Helle Viking in More Detail:
The thick blade is made from laminated carbon steel which has been finished with a heat treatment to produce the archaic appearance. The tang of the Helle Viking has been peened over a diamond-shaped washer on the butt of the handle, which adds to the rustic theme and ensures knife strength.
The handle is basic in form, but highly functional, and a particularly good shape for carrying out bushcraft jobs such as making feather sticks and carving, as there is no awkward finger guard or pronounced choil to get in the way of the cutting action, resulting in the ability to use a variety of grips and cutting techniques in complete comfort.
The leather sheath is well-made and comes complete with a thick belt loop.
