Viking outdoor bushcraft outdoors hunting sport knife
The Viking is a revision of a Helle classic that was produced as part of a fund-raiser for an around-the-world- cruise of a Viking long ship. The knife is notable not only for it’s historical interest, but also as an excellent all around utility knife.
The blade is rather thick and made of laminated carbon steel. The black finish of the heat treatment is left on the sides for rustic look. The tang of the blade is peened over a diamond shaped washer. The handle is subtly shaped for comfort and control with a variety of grips. It comes with the traditional sheath that hangs from a thong.

Skilled hands play a major role in Helle's knife production, and each knife takes up to 45 manual processes to complete. By finishing each knife individually, craftsmen bring out the best qualities of Helle's past, place, people, and production.
The result is a one-of-a-kind knife, worthy of passing down through generations.
