Helle Temagami Bushcraft Knife - Designed by Les Stroud - The Survivor Man
The Helle Temagami is a cracker, it is designed by Les Stroud - The Survivorman, and is a really usuable piece of kit. We were pleasantly suprised as this has been designed to be a tough, easily maintainable knife in a choice of steels and is one of those bits of kit you just know will work in the field when you get it in your hands.
There is a choice of laminated Carbon Steel or laminated Stainless Steel, as per Helle's traditions, and both models come with a beutifully selected piece of Curly Birch as a handle. It also comes with a brown leather belt sheath.
The difference between a Helle knife and other knives are many. The biggest is that they use 3-layer laminated steel in their blades. A maximum of sharp, lasting knife edge is created by hard, high-alloy carbon steel.
To keep the superior properties and also make a stainless steel and durable knife, They add a protective layer softer, stainless steel on each side to make a truly versatile and easy to maintain knife.
The result is a razor sharp blade that is almost impossible to break while maintain its edge a long time. Using this method they combine the best qualities of both steels. There is no compromise in quality as they then handle them with some of the finest materials from Scandinavia.
This knife is essentially handcrafted from start to finish.
