90 years ago, brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle built a forge and started making knives on the family farm in Holmedal. When designing this year’s limited-edition knives, Jan Steffen and Svein-Erik Helle wanted to honour their grandparents by designing knives that preserved the essence of their grandparent’s design philosophy.
Svein-Erik’s design features a 110cm long and highly-polished H3LS blade with a slight false edge/swedge on the spine. The handle is slightly longer at 115mm, and incorporates antler inlets in addition to curly birch and dyed green leather.
The sheath, made with the original 1930s style Helle print on it, is done in classic tan leather with white stitching to match the antler horn – Svein-Erik’s grandfather’s favourite material.
