Helle is a very cool company and this new Survivor Man series is great. They make amazing products in Norway that are really world class. They use top quality materials for real world use. The wood they use is extraordinary and people give the steel rave reviews. It gets razor sharp and is easy to sharpen. When you get a Helle knife, it arrives in its cardboard tube and the knife is in its sheath with a cleaning cloth over it. The knife fits nice and snug in the formed leather, Their prices are reasonable for top quality products. These Survivor Man items are new and they seem great with a polished blade and oiled wood handles. The grip feels perfect. These are not fancy knives, but are items to be used and depended upon.
