Sigmund is in many ways a unique, historic Helle knife created for the 2012 anniversary and it has quite a story to tell. Designed by two generations of Helle men − blade designed by Sigmund Helle in the 1930’s and its handle by his son Torodd Helle in 2012, thus representing 80 years of tradition.
The Sigmund is a classic all-purpose knife. Its beautifully crafted handle made of stacked pieced of dark oak mixed with pieces of leather gives the knife personality as a worthy masterpiece. The knives comes with an out-of-the-box popping sharp triple laminated steel blade.
The medium size handle has been hand sanded to a satin finish and offers a medium size grip large enough for medium to large hands. A small but important fingerboard guides for a secure position, even when holding a grip close to the sharp blade.
The Sigmund knife comes with a genuine leather sheath, also out of the ordinary. The use of old tools gives the leather an unique and historic finish.
This was a small batch reproduced in 2023 because of popular demand. They will not last long.
