HE4: Fjellkniven
The Fjellkniven is a traditional all-purpose belt knife.

This highly polished laminated stainless steel blade is shaped for every day chores. The comfortable grip is shaped to keep your hands off the blade. It comes with the traditional pouch style sheath that does not require a keeper strap.

Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness as a lifelong outdoors companion. But it is still important to take care of your knife and its sheath.

The Handle. Dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally.

The Sheath. The leather needs to be impregnated occasionally with colorless impregnation agent (grease or wax) to keep supple. Dry the sheath carefully in room temperature if it becomes wet.

The Blade. Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally.

Use a diamond tool or a wet stone for sharpening. Place the knife bevel flat to the sharpening tool and work the entire blade. Work one side until you can feel a slight burr on the opposite side. Switch side and repeat the procedure until you feel the burr on the first side. You have now established an edge.

Remove the burr by stroking the blade gently over the sharpening surface on both sides, as if cutting very thin slices. Keep the bevel flat towards the sharpener and move from side to side until the burr is gone.

If the blade is very dull or damaged, use a fine-grained grindstone and plenty of water and sharpen until you have a raw edge. Use much cooling liquid and never sharpen on a dry stone. A hot-ground edge looses its heat treatment and ruins the blade.

Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel
Utilizes a wide variety of alloys but all contain a minimum of 10.5% Chromium content. Stainless steels will not corrode, rust, or oxidize but are not completely stain-proof so the title is somewhat of a misnomer.
Wood Handles
Wood Handles
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.

Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
Amazingly sharp
I didn't really know about Helle knives until an article I read about good knives for reasonably money. Yes, this is more than most Buck knives but the steel is excellent. This knife arrived razor sharp and I stropped it on a leather strop. It is sharper than surgical steel, easily taken hair off my arm with minimal pressure. I skinned/cleaned an antelope with it and still razor sharp. I am impressed with this blade. I have many many good quality knives and this thing is one of my top 2 or 3. It is light, sturdy, super sharp, and keeps a great edge. I'm sure it is sturdy enough for camp chores, batoning, etc but I won't be doing that with this edge. One thing I noted about Helle knives in general is that they are all handmade and therefore have slight variances in fit/finish, handle material, etc. I handled a few with slightly "non-straight" blades which I'm sure does not affect performance at all but keep in mind these are hand-made so it is to be expected. Awesome knife. Highly recommended. I'll be acquiring more Helle blades for sure. I would like a little better sheath. It is good leather but not overly thick and the rivet which attaches the belt loop to the main body of the sheath is not as sturdy as I would like. I will wear out with time and I'll replace it with something sturdier or I'll sew it on with heavy nylon thread.

Review of Helle Fjellkniven
I will use this knife mainly for camping duties. It is of good weight and the handle fills the hand very well. The scandi grind comes really sharp out of the box - I like it that it is also a laminated stainless steel. Overall quality is excellent. I have yet to sharpen the knife, but have applied some danish oil to the curly birch handle. The sheath is great as there is a liner within - to prevent accidental extrusion of the blade. However the leather feels a little soft and I am a little concerned that the leather will not take the strain of abuse, so I'm going to apply beeswax to harden it. But overall, a great knife.

Pros: Materials, Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Finish
Cons: None
Sharp as can be right out of the box.
I have wanted to get a Scandinavian ground knife for bushcrafting and as a camp chore knife. This knife was better than I imagined. It is the sharpest knife I own in my collection. In fact I cut myself the first day. It Slices so well. Shipped really fast and am very happy with the service.
