Helle make knives that are made for the outdoors...
The wild mountains, fjords and open seas combined with generations of outdoorsmen are the inspiration for their design.
Each knife is designed with a specific task in mind. The purpose of a specific knife may be that it should replace a couple of other tools and be a versatile and multifunctional tool. Or its mission can be to be the best fishing knife around.
This does not mean that the Helle knives are plain and not aesthetic. Helle knives should feel as good in your hand as they are beautiful to the eye.
In a way you could argue that everybody who works at Helle is also a member of our R&D department. Thr whole team are all leading lives in the rugged Norwegian mountains and fjords and actually use the knives themselves.
To design a Helle knife the designer needs to understand and appreciate how a knife should work in real life.
And for the same reason you should also argue that everybody at Helle is a member of the Helle quality team.
