No Machine Can Replace Skilled Craftsmanship.
A Helle knife is made to withstand the stresses and strains that a knife is subjected to outdoors. Helle upholds its traditions of craftsmanship and quality rather than large product lines and automated production. We believe that quality is best preserved through skilful craftsmanship.
Skilled knife specialists take pride in making the Helle brand synonymous with quality. We use up to a half an hour to create a knife, as we want to be sure that your demands for quality and finish are met.
A Helle knife goes through up to 45 different manual operations before it is finally checked and packaged.
Do you remember your first bark boat? Your first home-made bow and arrow?
Or what about the first time you gutted a fish you had caught yourself? For a Norwegian, it is most likely that he or she would have used a Helle knife.
Whereas many knife manufacturers today depend on automated production and large product lines, we depend on quality and production through craftsmanship.
Since 1932, Helle knives represented the very highest traditions of quality in Norwegian craftsmanship.
Despite its aestethic qualities, a Helle knife is not made to be an ornament.
It is made to be used.
