Helle Knives GT Helle Knives of Norway
Nice knives Helle. Made in Norway. They use a traditional method employing a narrow tang, capped at the end and they use mainly traditional materials for the handle, curly birch, leather, antler etc.
The steel of the blades is interesting, they clad a carbon ( high carbon.. Carbon -0.67%, Silicon -0.70%, Sulphur -0.002%, Phosphorous -0.19%, Manganese 0.44%, Nickel -0.28%, Chromium -0.28%, Molybdenum -0.52%). steel core, hardened to 58/59HRC with a soft, but very rust resistant and flexable 18/8 steel (18% chromium/8%nickel). This makes the blade strong and rust resistant, and protects the hard, sharp cutting edge.
