This handy all purpose knife that is well worth passing down through the generations. The blade that has a bit of drop point is very functional for both game and camp chores. Razor sharp triple laminated stainless steel. The handle of the Odel is curly birch, antler and leather and is deeply contoured for positive control. It comes with a study leather sheath of the deep Nordic style.
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.
Dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally.
The leather needs to be impregnated occasionally with colorless impregnation agent (grease or wax) to keep supple. Dry the sheath carefully in room temperature if it becomes wet.
Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally.
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.
