Helle 75th Anniversary Knife was first produced to celebrate Helle’s 75th anniversary.

The handle is made of curly birch and walnut for a nice contrast. The triple laminated stainless steel blade has a little bit of upsweep to give a very sharp point and a bit of belly toward the point. The traditional pouch sheath of leather for safe carry makes this a good choice for a full size hunting or utility knife.

 

  • Blade:  4.2”
  • Handle 4.2”
  • Weight with Sheath 4.8 oz  (this is a correction as our paper catalog lists it at 3.6 oz -- that is weight of knife without sheath)


Maintenance
Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness as a lifelong outdoors companion. But it is still important to take care of your knife and its sheath.

The Handle: Dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally.
The Sheath: The leather needs to be impregnated occasionally with colourless impregnation agent (grease or wax) to keep supple. Dry the sheath carefully in room temperature if it becomes wet
The Blade: Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally.

Sharpening
Use a diamond tool or a wet stone for sharpening. Place the knife bevel flat to the sharpening tool and work the entire blade. Work one side until you can feel a slight burr on the opposite side. Switch side and repeat the procedure until you feel the burr on the first side. You have now established an edge. Remove the burr by stroking the blade gently over the sharpening surface on both sides, as if cutting very thin slices. Keep the bevel flat towards the sharpener and move from side to side until the burr is gone. If the blade is very dull or damaged, use a fine-grained grindstone and plenty of water and sharpen until you have a raw edge. Use much cooling liquid and never sharpen on a dry stone. A hot-ground edge looses its heat treatment and ruins the blade.
