This is a good practical Helle Knife that works well for outdoor activities. The handle is a bit larger than the Fjellkniven and has a nice indent to help keep your hand firmly on the wood. The drop point blade has a nice satin finish. Not the best choice for a skinner but it will get the job done. Overall length of 8 .5", blade length of 3 875"



The Helle Knives are made of triple laminate stainless steel. The center portion is of high quality stainless steel that tests out to be 58-59 on the Rockwell scale. The outside steel is 18/8 stainless. This makes a blade that is very sharp. Each blade is made under the strictest quality control in the modern Helle factory. Each handle is handmade by quality craftsman and, because of the nature of wood, may vary slightly. Unlike most handmade or custom knives, these knives are very affordable. Each blade is made of triple laminated steel. The center section is a high quality stainless steel that tests out to 59 on the Rockwell scale. Each side of the blade is composed of the famous 18/8 stainless steel. This combination allows the manufacturer to create a blade that is extremely sharp without being brittle. These blades are so highly thought of in Europe that many custom knife makers use the Helle blades and create their own handles and sheaths.

    Fantastic Knife

    Posted by Dave C on 22nd May 2015

    I bought my Eggen from HH at least 12 years ago. over the years I've used this knife an awful lot. It has never let me down. The edge retention is better than any other knife I own - and I own a few! This is by far my favourite for game dressing and butchery. It's great for bushcraft type carving and camp chores. I would replace this knife immediately with another Eggen if were to lose it (heaven forbid!). Probably the best quality for value knife I've ever owned.

    Helle Lam. Stainless Steel

    Posted by Schneeebly on 25th Aug 2013

    The sheath, construction and finishing of the knife are good for me. What I didn't like was the steel used. The scandi grind used in conjunction with the steel they used (an undisclosed laminated steel) gave the blade very poor edge retention, with numerous micro chips forming very easily. For this reason I don't recommend this knife, or any Helle with the same steel used.

    best knife

    Posted by Bob van der Ende on 11th Aug 2010

    I heard about Helle when I was 14. I bought the Helle Eggen in Norway. I just want a knife who, looks good, is perfectly balanced, from the best qualaty and made in Norway. So I don't 'just' bought my best knife. I am now 17 yo and I have learn a lot about knifemaking, forging and quality of knifes and I forging them myself. I can tell you the Eggen is one of the best. The Eggen is always my most precious example. I just say: He is worth. Bob van der Ende The Netherlands

    still loving this knife

    Posted by goodbloke on 21st May 2010

    A few more months down the road and this knife still comes out tops, I have alot of knives but this is still my favorite, even more so than my trusted mora knives. Keep it topped up with linseed oil and it will look like new after every trip. However back of blade is soft so don't go scratching it with a fire steel, I did but autosol polished it up like new again.

    Helle Eggen

    Posted by Arran Shirovay on 25th Apr 2009

    Amazing quality knife for its money, quality through and through, leather sheath is really nice, smooth fitting. Without having much experience sharpening however i can get a scary sharp edge on this blade, probably the scandinavian bevel. I fancy the Earth next.
