Knives made to be used
The wild mountains, fjords and open seas combined with generations of outdoorsmen are the inspiration for our design.
Each knife is designed with a specific task in mind. The purpose of a specific knife may be that it should replace a couple of other tools and be a versatile and multifunctional tool. Or its mission can be to be the best fishing knife around.
This does not mean that the Helle knives are plain and not aesthetic. Our knives should feel as good in your hand as they are beautiful to the eye.
We make honest knives.
In a way you could argue that everybody who works at Helle is also a member of our R&D department. We are all leading lives in the rugged Norwegian mountains and fjords and we actually use the knives that we make. None of us would accept a knife that does not work as intended or a knife with some useless gimmick.
To design a Helle knife the designer needs to understand and appreciate how a knife should work in real life.
And for the same reason you should also argue that everybody at Helle is a member of the Helle quality team.
