Stepping into the knife-making scene in 1932, the Norwegian knife brand Helle has made tons of reliable cutting tools over the decades. However, they’re known for making fixed-blade knives for surviving the trials of outdoor life — until now. The Helle Kletten Knife is based on 87 years of Scandinavian design and is the company’s first legitimate EDC pocket knife.
This heirloom-quality knife features a compact 2.1-inch triple laminated stainless steel blade and a sturdy curly birch handle. The Helle knife also has a secure lock back design, a forward finger guard, and a reliable three-finger grip to help you get a firm grasp to handle any daily task. The drop point blade has a razor-sharp Scandinavian grind, adding to its functionality for small, spontaneous adventures. Kletten means “small mountain,” which is fitting for a sturdy, compact EDC knife. If the Kletten is a little too tiny for your mitts, Helle also released the Bleja, which features a 3.4-inch stainless steel blade and a lockback mechanism with full liners. You can pick up the elegant Helle Kletten Knife this fall for $199 or the Bleja right now for $224.
