Helle Dokka | Norwegian Folding Knife

6 Nov

The Helle Dokka is such a beautiful and ridiculously well crafted folding knife, we have a hard time keeping this Helle knife in stock! Helle isn’t known for folding knives (the Dokka is their first folder), but ever since they introduced the Helle Dokka, it has been a runaway success. I believe the success of the Dokka knife will cause Helle to produce more folding knives in the future. Would you like to see Helle produce more new models of folding knives? For some additional info on this knife, check out the Dokka product leaflet from Helle.

Helle Taiga Knife

25 Jun

Want a big bad Norwegian knife? Check out the Helle Taiga! From the manufacturer: “The Taiga is a big working knife suited for larger hands. The handle of colored birch is well shaped for a comfortable grip. It is a big knife with a blade of triple laminated stainless steel. Even for a big knife it does not feel cumbersome. It comes with a traditional pouch sheath with a belt loop. It is a nice package.” As with all Helle Knives, this awesome knife is handmade in Norway and is the absolute finest quality. Although the Helle brand is somewhat new in the North American market, Helle has been hand making knives in Norway since the 1930’s! To learn more about this Norwegian Helle Taiga knife and to see our current pricing, visit Makais.

A few days ago I posted about how excited I was to receive a Helle Harding knife, and I had mentioned that Helle Knives just might be for sale soon at Makais.com. Well, that has already happened!

Helle Harding Knife

5 Oct

I was delighted today when I got a suprise in the mail from a very nice company, kind enough to ship us a Harding knife sample from Helle, a Norwegian company that manufacturers the highest quality knives! Normally I don’t get so excited about a product sample, but this knife just struck me as rather unique. Each Helle knife goes through up to 45 different manual processes before it is completed. Looking at this knife today in my hands, the craftsmanship of these knives is just spectacular. Check out some of the pictures I took. The cylinder-shaped box the knife comes in is also very attractive and well packaged.

The Helle Harding knife is an American style drop point hunter knife with a Norwegian accent. The knife features a triple layered laminated stainless steel blade, American Walnut & Birch wood handle, and a dark brown leather sheath. The sturdy sheath has the Noric style keeper strap that engages a stud on the pommel of the knife. The stud helps prevent you from losing the knife, yet keeps the knife instantly available. (reminds me of the snap-in on a gun holster) This is a beautiful knife. Blade length is 3.94 inches (10.0 cm), and the handle measures 4.33 inches. (11.0 cm).
