Helle Wabakimi Fixed Blade Knife

Sep 17, 2018

When a knife-making brand has a solid reputation for building sturdy, minimalist outdoor knives, they probably don’t need any help in the design department. But it doesn’t hurt when they pair up with someone of outstanding pedigree. And that’s exactly what happened with Helle Knives when they called upon the Survivorman himself, Les Stroud, to make their Wabakimi fixed blade knife.

In case you’ve forgotten, Les Stroud is famous for his outdoor show, in which he — completely unaided — went into the harshest terrain on Earth to illustrate how one might survive a worst case scenario. And that level of expertise cannot be ignored — especially when it comes to the tools Mr. Stroud puts his name upon. Proof that sometimes simple is best, this Norwegian knife features a 3.3″ plain edge blade made from triple-laminated stainless steel mated to a curly birch wood handle. It also comes with an equally simple and handsome leather sheath. And did we mention that Stroud named it after the Canadian wilderness park where he spent a year living off the land? Get your hands on this top-tier survival fixed blade for $179.

Purchase: $179
