    Helle Knives


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I am looking to buy a Helle

    I do not want a blade longer than 3 1/2"
    And I want the price at around $60

    I am looking at three models:
    • Harmoni
    • Symfoni
    • Besseggen



    What do you think?
    Any other sugestions?
    Other manufacturers?

    I would go with the Harmoni or Symponi. Helle are some of the best knives around. If you're still looking for brands, look at Brusletto, Jarvenpaa, Ahti.

    Can get them all at Ragweed Forge. His stock is a bit low at the moment, but
    expecting more in shortly.

    My favorite is Helle Speider 05 about $45.
    Nice grip, lightweight, quick n easy thumb
    release on sheath's snap.
    OAL 7 7/8 in. blade 3.5 in.



    Also (around $60) is the Fjellbekk, larger than the speider
    and has Merbau handle. OAL 8 5/8" Blade 3 7/8"

    I only own one Helle, a "Fjellkniv", but it's great. A little less "fancy" than some but the laminated blade is for real.
    I'm sure you'll love whichever one you choose, Neeman.

    I'd stick with one of the Helle with laminated blade. While their other Sandvik blades are good, IMHO the laminated blades are better; take and hold a better edge. If you want a really top end Helle, look at their Viking - laminated carbon blade, nice curly birch handle and good sheath. A tad bit more expensive $75, but well worth it.

    any helle will do, they are all beautiful, functional well made knives... the lam blades are very nice and hold a wicked edge. for around 60 - 80 you should be able to find one that speaks to you, the harmoni is a good pick i've got one somewhere

    A big thumbs up on the Helle knives, I had a Helle Fire and it was one of the best designed little camp knives I have ever owned. You will note the past tense....it now belongs to my brother...lol.

    I'm for Bessegen, I own Symfoni and Bessegen. while Bessegen is "cheaper" knife, I like it alot. Its handle suits me better and sheath is considerable better than Symfoni's. I palso prefer rant-tail tang it has over 3/4 tang of Symfoni.

    I agree Rich S. Viking is no BS pure lined Puukko. Its my next puukko to buy when I find a retailer for it.
