HELLE Knife Handles are made from carefully selected materials. Good Craftsmanship requires the ability to create Handle Shapes which are Consistent-with-the-Blade, Fit Comfortably in the Hand, and Add-Character to the Knife. A Painstaking-Process of Grinding, Polishing and Oiling is performed to offer Full-Justice to the Natural-Beauty of these materials. Because HELLE uses Natural-Materials in their Handles, each HELLE Knife has its Own-Unique-Look. A Knife is more than just a Blade, and a HELLE Knife is a True-Work-of-Art.
The differences between a HELLE Knife and other Knives are many. The biggest difference lies in HELLE's Triple Laminated Stainless Steel Blade. The Core is made of High Alloy Steel which gives it a Lasting, Razor-Sharp Edge. This Harder-Layer cannot however exclude the threat of Rust or Breakage. To Exploit the Superb Qualities of the High Alloy Steel HELLE added Two-Layers of Tough Stainless Steel (18/8) to Protect-the-Blade-Against Breakage and Corrosion, while the High Carbon Core still provides a Superb Cutting Edge. This Triple Laminated Stainless Steel is Unique to HELLE Knife Blades. The Steel HELLE uses are more expensive than in most other knife brands, but that is all a part of HELLE's philosophy of Never Compromising on Quality. The Sheath the Nordic way. Quality is of utmost importance to A/S HELLE FABRIKKER, and they apply the same criteria to their Sheaths as they do to their Knife Blades and Handles. Good Craftsmanship and the Perceptible Quality of the Materials used, make for a Sheath which is both Strong and Attractive. Like their Knives, the Sheaths are designed to be Functional and Durable. At the same time, they demand that all Sheaths Match-the-Beauty and Character of the Knives that they encase. HELLE's Sheaths are made of Specially Tanned Leather, and Treated with Saddle Grease for Increased-Luster and Durability. The particular shape of the Norwegian Sheath bears evidence of Long-Time Functional Development and at the same time, it enhances the Quality-of-the-Knife.
