The Saga Siglar knife is a triple laminated carbon steel blade with traditional Scandinavian grind. This knife is not stainless, so measure should be taken with regards to maintenance to keep it dry/ prevent rusting. It is a replica of a traditional Viking-age belt knife that Helle made in 1983 for Norwegian explorer Ragnar Thorseth. Thorseth lead a trip around the world in a 1,000 year old wooden Viking long ship.
Helle knives was founded in 1932 by brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle, whose father, Bernt, was the town blacksmith in Holmedal, Norway. The original workshop was run without electricity and the first knives were bicycled through the mountains of Norway to be sold in Oslo. Helle knives are still made in Holmedal, where hand-work and the use of quality materials is still central to the production of knives. These knives are tested by Helle team members in the rugged mountains and fjords of Norway.
