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.

Pros: Handle Material, Materials, Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Blade Material, Finish
Quality is just not there.
I initially loved everything about this knife when I first got... then I took it outside to use. 1. The back spine is neither sharp enough nor hard enough (3-layer stainless steel) to use with a fire steel. Only the blade edge is hard enough and I don't want to ruin the blade doing that! 2. The jimping is in the wrong place on the spine (I don't think the new ones have it at all) and does not work with a fire steel as it was designed for. 3. A few minutes battoning and the brass pins started to rotate. Now they are out of line with the birch handle and present hard edges for the hands to cut on. 4. I like the blade shape and the grind. And the handle is ergonomic and fits nicely. But because of 1-3, I can't recommend this blade to anyone but a collector.

Pros: Handle Material, Weight, None
Cons: Blade Material, Overall Quality
It's overpriced considering materials.
The Helle Temagami is the perfect example of how knife companies take advantage of a popular activity,(bushcrafting) and use a celebrity to endorse/design the knife,and charge double/triple for what the knife actually is worth.Helle's not the only one's doing it...The Temagami has an average grade of steel(Sandvik12c27) that is used in several knives that cost under $75.Mora for example,uses it,and a typical Mora runs anywhere from $15-50.The handle on the Temagami is nice,it is birch,a commonly used wood on scandanavian blades.It's nothing special..The sheath is leather.A commonly used material for scandanavian style sheaths.Nothing sets the Temagami apart from all the other bushcraft style knives with which it competes against,except the fact that a celebrity/survival expert(Les Stroud) supposedly designed it,and endorses it.The BenchMade bushcrafter for example,costs the same as the Temagami,but has FAR SUPERIOR steel(S30v),ergonomics,fit/finish,and IMO,handle and sheath..There's Plenty of bushcraft knives that costs $75-150 that are not celebrity endorsed,and doesn't come with bells and whistles,but are good no nonsense blades.Ignore the hype,and the marketing gimmicks folks.The Temagami is a good blade,it's just not worth it's price.At $75-100 it would be a Fair deal.But at it's current price,if your willing to spend $170 for a bushcraft knife,just get the BenchMade bushcraft.Alot better steel.Alot better Everything....

Good knife - Poor Handle finished for the price.
Is a good knife which I love work with. But!! TERRIBLE HANDLE FINISHED. A lot of scratches and tools signals, the lanyard hole look terrible and asymmetric with a really rustic finished. Both pins looking short in one side and large in the other, with the scratches around both pins. The finger grove is nasty as hell, somebody forgot use a sand paper over there. You can fix it (the handle) with a sand paper, sealer and other products. BUT if you can buy just the tang blade for $60 average, where are suppose to be the extra $133 dollars???? I though in a nice curly birch handle, but my surprise!! NOO!. Is a really poor handle finished. Nice Blade, work fine, I liked. But Why you have to spend 4 hours and materials fixing (re-finishing) a $195 knife handle?. (by the way, the blade is not mint condition aether but is ok) My case is a over-seas sale, I know that I overpaid, and I already assimilated, but being in USA, I was sending it back for sure. Helle is going down in quality control.
