Helle-1075Eggen - 101mm Drop Point 12C27 Stainless Steel Knife (Curly Birch Handle with Dark Brown Sheath)
The Eggen is one of Helles most sought after products. In 2021, Helle, added the Eggen 12C27 − same design and feel, now with the option of a non-laminated blade.
The choice between 12C27 and H3LS (laminated) all comes down to how you want to use your knife.
The 12C27 steel offers a different feel to the blade with its stiffer flex. The fully hardened blade (since it is not laminated) can also be converted to having a sharp spine, for all of you who want to use the knife with a ferro rod.
The Eggen 12C27 has a beautiful handle, crafted from one piece of selected curly birch, carefully sanded and polished by hand to a satin finish. The handle has a well-proportioned finger guard for safety.
The Eggen 12C27 comes with a black sheath in genuine leather with silver stitching to match the aluminium butt at the end of the handle.
