Description

The Helle Viking knife is a revision of a Helle classic. The original Viking was designed by Arne Emile Christensen, a professor with the University Museum of National Antiquities in Oslo, as a recreation of a Viking Age belt knife. The knife was produced as a part of a fund-raiser for an around-the-world cruise of a Viking longship. The knife is notable not only for it's historical interest, but also as an excellent all around utility knife. The black finish of the heat treatment is left on the sides for a rustic look.

      Comments about Viking Knife:

      I just received my Helle Viking Knife. I was very excited to purchase this item, since I appreciate simplicity of design. I am very disappointed by the quality of this product. The overall build quality is very poor. The steel is soft and the blade is too thick to be practical for most purposes. The edge grind is also very poor. My biggest complaint regards the sheath, which fits very poorly and provides very little protection to the blade. The sheath fits far too tightly. It requires a significant amount of force to remove the blade, which causes the cutting edge to come in contact with the leather, making it likely that the blade will quickly cut through the sheath, causing it to become useless, or even dangerous. Will be returning this item immediately.

        Comments about Viking Knife:

        The Helle Viking is very simple in style (historical information is available on it extensively online). I found mine to be very sharp, well made though the grind on the blade was a little off. I like simple, natural knives and this was just perfect for me.

          Comments about Viking Knife:

          I really like the design of the knife. It was based on examples of Viking knives which is cool since they lived bushcraft before it became a fad. The wood handle has a nice linseed oil smell just like my Scandinavian axes handles. The knife comes with a sharp scandi grind and a pleasing pukko style leather sheath. The steel isn't hard enough to strike a fire steel which is okay with me because I prefer to use a dedicate striker, but some people want to know that sort of thing. Only con is the underside of the handle is kind of pointy instead of rounded. However, it's not horribly uncomfortable.
