The Helle Saga Siglar is designed by Arne Emile Christensen. Professor Christensen is with the University Museum of National Antiquities in Oslo. The knife was produced as part of a fund-raiser for an around-the-world cruse of a Viking longship. The knife is notable not only for it's historical interest, but also as an excellent all around utility knife.
The shorter blade length makes this knife handier for every day tasks. The black finish of the heat treatment is left on the sides of the blade for a rustic look. The tang of the blade is peened over a diamond shaped washer. The curly birch handle is subtly shaped for comfort and control with a variety of grips. It comes with the traditional genuine leather sheath that hangs from a thong.
There is a tradition that a personal belt knife should have a blade about as long as the width of your palm. This one is closer to my small to average hand size.
