Tough as nails but pretty as a picture.

Yeah, the Helle Eggen Knife is pretty enough to sit on display in some glass case never to be touched. But the craftsmen who built it would be pretty pissed if they found out, because they built it to be used. This stout, versatile hunting knife features a drop point triple-laminated stainless steel blade that's ideal for cutting out a fresh tenderloin to throw on the grill back at camp. The gorgeous curly birch handle offers an ergonomic grip and is carved for a finger guard. The leather sheath is so much more fitting than a glass case.

Bought this as a gift for a friend who's a bit of a knife snob. Went with this one based on other reviews and the general brand reputation. He got it and confirmed the quality and says he loves it.

It took me a minute to get over the too pretty to use factor of this knife but it has since become a real workhorse. The knife sharpener at the farmers market was very impressed with it and that guy sees a lot of knives.

Beautiful knife for most uses

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I wear this knife in plenty of situations where a simple pocket or smaller flip-blade would do because it's so beautiful. I get questions and compliments on it all the time. The stainless blade and birch handle are both eye-catchers. Beyond looks, this is a decent all-around blade. It's super sharp and holds an edge pretty well. It works great for most cutting, whittling and food prep, though I don't know that I'd take it on a backcountry trek; the partial tang makes heavier tasks like splitting and digging a no-go, as the handle can't take the abuse. All that said, this is a GREAT knife.

Beautiful piece of work!

This is a fantastic knife! Very well constructed. Solid steel blade with a high polish and a super sharp edge. Has a lovely birch handle. Well balanced in the hand. I have large hands and it fits me well. Comes with a nice oiled leather sheath that's seems just as sturdy as the knife. Comes nicely presented in tube package along with a branded cleaning cloth.

Super hot, very comfortable handle and a well balanced, sturdy blade. Can't testify to how well it holds an edge yet, but so far I love this thing.

Just got it and took it out. Man is it a beautiful and feels so good in my hand. It is Sharp, I mean Sharp!!! I can not wait to shoot an elk next year and use this baby to get it to the butcher. The sheath is wonderful, every detail says first class knife!!! I own a few different knives and am always looking for a new better one. This might be my last knife, pretty sure Helle will be the last brand I buy!

Awesome Knife!

Handle feels great, blade is sharp right out of the box. Can't wait to get it out into the backcountry and use it for years to come. Beautiful craftsmanship. This knife will be around for a good long while and probably won't be my only piece from Helle.
