Helle-Audun -  88mm H3LS Stainless Steel 2024 LTD (Curly Birch & Reindeer Antler  Handle with Leather Sheath)

The 2024 Helle limited edition knife is designed by their chief handlemaker Audun. Starting in 1973, Audun first worked on the cutlery before taking over as chief handlemaker and foreman. For the past 50 years he has worked with and for three generation of Helles and played an integral part of many of their inhouse design. Helle has developed with Audun, and Audun has developed with Helle.

This year Audun has made his own favorite knife, based on over 50 years of knowledge and skills. The finished product is a stunning knife that incorporates both the new and old of Helle. It features a classic H3LS laminate steel blade with scandi grind and a slight drop point. The shape and size of the blade makes it ideal as an all-purpose hiking companion.

Special recipe handle

The handle features two of Audun’s favorite materials. The front piece is made of reindeer antlers, protected in the front by a stainless steel plate. This front piece is effortlessly integrated into a colored curly birch handle. The oil mix used to color the handle is Audun’s special recipe, which creates a dark red and brown hue - a beautiful contrast to the white reindeer antler. It has the added bonus of smelling like you have just started a bonfire. The shape of the handle features the traditional belly that is a feature of many Helle knives, whereas the extensive pommel tips its hat to more recent designs.

The knife comes with Audun’s own version of his favorite Helle sheath. As a handlemaker, he loves birch and the symbol on the front of the sheath is a birch tree in the spring time.
