The Helle knife factory is located only a short distance from the small farm where Steinar and Sigmund Hella first started their knife business in 1932. Today the knives are still produced by hand, with a continuing focus on quality, tradition, and craftsmanship. The designs are inspired by the rugged beauty and outdoor lifestyle of this region of mountains and fjords. The blades are constructed of triple laminated stainless steel, the handles constructed of natural materials including smoked oak, leather, and curly birch. Each knife comes with a genuine leather sheath.
