Helle Nying - My EDC before EDC was a thing.

In 1985 I bought my Helle Nying, some brown cheese and a beautiful sheepskin on my way to visit Lyse Abbey in western Norway. That small knife has never left my side, still in daily use. Cod, flounder, trout and halibut. I used it for a thousand everyday things as well. It has crossed the atlantic many times and the pacific twice. A treasure.

Excellent Service and Product

I have purchased a number of knives from Ragweed Forge over the years and have always had excellent service. This is the second Nying I’ve owned, first one my father brought back from a trip to Norway 25 years ago. That one is pretty well worn, so this is a replacement. Helle being hand made, are always a little different - this one is top quality and a beautiful handle that Ragnar hand selected for me by request. Shipping was quick, price reasonable, service from Ragweed is outstanding.

Thank you for an awesome review and for your continued support. We appreciate your business and look forward to hearing from you again. We hope it serves you well for years to come.
