Helle Didi Galgalu NEW 14C28N Curly Birch
Introducing the upgrade to our most sold bushcraft knife. The new Didi Galgalu comes in 14C28N steel with a sharp spine, and features a beautiful, contoured curly birch handle. Not too big, not too small – it is the perfect knife for your small and large bushcrafting adventures.
The original Didi Galgalu was designed in collaboration between Helle and South African Overlander "Voetspore team". Released in 2015, it was one of the first Helle knives with a full tang construction. In the past few years it has become a very popular model in bushcrafting circles, due to its combination of utility and beauty.
The knife itself is fairly big, suitable for medium to large hands. The shape of the handle offers a sturdy and safe grip even if held close to the blade, thanks to the double contoured handle. The handle is held in place by two sturdy brass rivets and a pipe rivet, where you can tie a cord or lanyard of leather.
The 3 mm blade is thin enough to perform well as a knife should when cutting or carving, yet strong enough for heavier tasks. The scandi grind means that it excels at most tasks you need a knife for when outside.
The Didi 14C28N comes with a high-quality black leather sheath with white stiching, designed for secure carry.
