Brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle started knife production in the old forge on their farm in Holmeland, Norway, in 1932 Then, as today, much of the production is done manually. The philosophy remains the same: Quality craftmanship is best preserved by skilled craftsmen -those with extensive experience and knowledge who still take pride in making each and every Helle knife unique.
Many Helle knives have a unique triple laminated stainless steel blade. The core is made of high alloy steel which gives it a lasting, razor-sharp edge. The outer two layers are of stainless steel(18/8) to protect the blade against breakage and corrosion, while the high carbon core still provides a superb cutting edge.
Helle knives have a distinctive large diameter handle of fine timber.
