Mândra knife designed and field tested with Les Stroud, a.k.a “Survivorman”.


This is the Helle Mandra. In order to perfect the design of this newest knife, Helle travelled to the raw, remote and overwhelmingly beautiful country of Romania working alongside Les Stroud on his latest Survivor man episodes.


The location of the expedition was situated in the Carpathian, a 1.450 kilometre mountain range extending through Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Romania and Serbia. An area of great dynamic contrast with both picturesque valleys and striking mountain peaks of over 2.500 metres.


An area of untouched nature, the Carpathian Mountains have impressive flora and fauna in addition to presenting the largest populations of brown bears, wolves, chamois and lynxes in Europe.


From a cultural perspective this area is the border between Europe and Asia with the famous Transylvanian Dracula legend based on the Ottoman controversy between the Romanians and the Turks.


During Les’ time in Romania, early prototypes of The Mândra were utilized in the Survivorman Romania episode. Adjustments and refinements were then integrated into the final design with Anders working directly on location with Les when he returned from his film excursion.


“We are extremely proud to present a brand new Les Stroud knife” notes Anders Haglund, head of international marketing with Helle. “In fact; the word Mândra literally means proud, and the new knife is named for the hilly peak where Les was found by the Salvamont rescue party during filming Survivorman in Romania”.


Les Stroud continues: “Put to the test during my intense filming of Survivorman and inspired by the raw and breathtaking nature of Romania, I now have the pleasure of unveiling my latest knife collaboration with Anders Haglund and Helle knives; The Mândra.”

    Excellent small back up

    Posted by Ironman on 27th Oct 2017

    Use this as a neck knife , I have put a small eyelet in end and it carries lovely and boy does it punch above its weight . Traditionally made and just works. Cheers Les, Helle and Heinnie Tony

    Poor Fit & Finish

    Posted by Jim on 2nd Jan 2017

    Nice concept - scandi, pocketable fixed blade - but very sloppy finish Lanyard tube irregular and squashed, heel of handle badly ground to wrong angle, untreated wood - a real 'Friday afternoon' (lack of) effort. All the more disappointing as this is one of Helle's more expensive models. Politely contacted Helle, with pictures, to see if these issues were common to this model (as never had issues with a Helle knives before), despite chasing, and their promises to get back to me they never did. Lack of quality assurance and customer service - very disappointed. Heinnie, as usual, provided exceptional customer service and refunded very quickly.
