The Alden is named after the island Alden. Alden is still an important landmark for Fishermen coming home from the sea. The island is situated just of the coast from where the Helle factory is situated.

The Alden has a non-laminated stainless steel blade (12C27) and curly birch handle with stainless steel fittings towards the blade. It has a small and useful finger guard to fit in a pouch style sheath.

The steel in Helle knives is unique


The differences between a Helle knife and other knives are many. The biggest difference lies in our triple laminated stainless steel blade. The core is made of high alloy steel which gives it a lasting, razor-sharp edge. This harder layer cannot however exclude the threat of rust or breakage.

To exploit the superb qualities of the high alloy steel we added two layers of tough stainless steel(18/8) to protect the blade against breakage and corrosion, while the high carbon core still provides a superb cutting edge. This triple laminated stainless steel is unique to our knife blades.

The steel we use is more expensive than in most other knife brands, but that is all a part of Helles philosophy of never compromising on quality.

 

Do you remember your first bark boat?  Your first home-made bow and arrow?


Or what about the first time you gutted a fish you had caught yourself? For a Norwegian, it is most likely that he or she would have used a Helle knife.

Whereas many knife manufacturers today depend on automated production and large product lines, we depend on quality and production through craftsmanship.

Since 1932, Helle knives represented the very highest traditions of quality in Norwegian craftsmanship.

Despite its aestethic qualities, a Helle knife is not made to be an ornament.

It is made to be used.
