MINT, UN-USED, Helle Norway Skinner Knife With Norwegian Curly Birch Hilt, Stainless Steel Blade & Scabbard. (Sn 14584:3 Daggers & Swords) - 14584:3
Helle Fabrikker was established in the early 1930's in response to hard times and the depression. The unemployed brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle started making farming tools and other implements in the forge of their father's farm. In 1932 they started making small sheath-knives which quickly became popular locally. Thus, the foundations of an important business in a typically Western-Norwegian rural area were laid. The Company continues to make quality hunting and utility knives in the modern era. This Norwegian skinner and scabbard by Helle is in mint condition. It is 6 ¾” overall with a razor sharp 2 ¾” stainless steel drop point blade. The blade is crisply marked by the manufacturer ‘Helle Norway’ and ‘Stainless’. The knife has a solid Norwegian curly birch handle. The handle has a Brass stud at the butt end, used to secure the knife to the retaining strap of the scabbard. The skinner comes with its original mint condition hand made brown leather scabbard which has pierced decoration to the front. The scabbard has a retaining strap with eyelet that fits securely to the knife’s pommel stud. The scabbard also has a small leather belt strap. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14584:3

This is a beautiful, mint, un-used, Norwegian staskniv, or "dress knife." In Norwegian knife tradition, a "brukskniv" is a utility knife for everyday use. A "staskniv" is the dress knife for wearing to church or other formal occasions. But in the rugged Norwegian countryside, even a dress knife could see heavy use. The bolster and pommel are stamped 925 sterling, as is the silver at the tip of the leather scabbard. The handle is curly birch. The blade is laminated with an outer rust-free lining over an inner core of carbon steel. The rust-free outer lining makes it easy to keep clean. This knife has never been used. It is still in its original presentation box. The leather sheath, presentation box, and original paper insert are included. The polished blade is 4 ½” long. Total length including handle with lanyard ring is 9 ½”. The ring is fitted with leather lace lanyard. A rough English translation of the paper insert is as follows: ‘Tele knife is an innovation throughout. Blade design is based on the best in the country's long knife traditions. In collaboration with designer John Gulbrandsrod we have developed not only a sovereign gift, but also a solid and user friendly tool. Emphasis is placed on a meaty appearance with good harmony and alignment as a knife should be. The steel is in stainless steel with innsmidd carbon steel making the blade easy to clean & suitable for many purposes. The shaft is in curly birch, stained and impregnated. In the shape of the shaft is devoted much work to bring up a shaft that govern well in hand, and that fills your hand.
