Helle Lappland Knife
The Helle Lappland celebrates the northern Scandinavia knife traditions and is a tool often used by the indigenous Sámi people as a utility knife with its classic design.
The Sámi people use these large knifes (Lauku) in their daily mobile life. This big knife comes with a non-laminated 12C27 stainless steel blade. The blade is fairly thin for effective slicing. The barren shaped handle is made of birch with brass fittings. Suitable for medium to large hands.
The knife sits deep in its traditional leather sheath and attaches with a leather strop. A great knife to have around camp, and together with a classic small knife it makes a perfect team member in your tool collection. This knife is large enough to be considered a mini-machete!
The name Lappland refers to the northern region that stretches and combines the northern parts of Finland, Norway and Sweden.
Helle knives have been handcrafted in Norway since 1932 by a family company characterized by tradition and craft! Now run by the third generation of the same family, everyone at Helle shares a passion for the outdoors, and this inspires the design and function of every knife.
