Helle Knives - Mandra "Neck" Knife
Designed in collaboration with Les Stroud, a.k.a. "Survivorman," the new Mandra neck knife was tested and refined on location in Romania. The final touches of the development of Mandra, meaning ”proud," were carried out in the raw, remote and overwhelmingly beautiful country of Romania –alongside the shooting of the latest Survivorman episodes. A triple laminated stainless steel blade and a handle of curly birch and vulcan fibre indicate the effort behind this brand new neck knife, accompanied by a genuine leather sheath.
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.
