Sigmund


Modern history.

The Sigmund anniversary knife is a little bit more than the ordinary and it has quite a story to tell.

Designed by two generations of Helle men. Knife-blade designed by Sigmund Helle in the beginning of the 1930’s and its handle by his son Torodd in 2012. Representing 80 years of tradition.

The Sigmund knife is a classic all-purpose knife. Its beautiful handle made out of stacked pieces of wood mixed with leather spacers gives the knife personality and the triple laminated stainless steel blade will offer extraordinary sharpness. The Sigmund knifes comes with a genuine leather sheath out of the ordinary.

 






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.
