The Helle Mandra is another knife designed by Les Stroud (the Survivorman) and Anders Haglund of the Helle company. The final development was done during the filming of a Survivorman episode in the Carpathian Mountains. The super compact knife has a short (2.7"), wide (1.2") blade with a good degree of belly for skinning type chores. The blade is triple laminated stainless for maximum edge retention and toughness. The handle is about 3 1/4" long. It features true full tang construction and a lanyard hole. The leather sheath secures the knife with a snap strap. The knife and sheath weigh only 3 1/2 ounces. It would be unnoticeable on the belt, and is well suited for neck carry.
