This Helle is for those who would like to finish their own. These Helle Harding's are the start to the Harding build but partially finished. Some may complete it just as the Harding looks and others will give it their own shape. Quite a fun experiment for those looking to get into knife making or professionals that would like to see how Helle does it in the factory. The knife is shipped just how you see it, ready for sanding and shaping.
