Designed and field tested with Les Stroud (a.k.a “Survivorman”). Perfecting the design of this newest Helle knife included traveling to the raw, remote, and overwhelmingly beautiful country of Romania to work alongside Les Stroud on his latest “Survivorman” episodes.

The exact location was Carpathian, a 1.450-kilometer mountain range extending through Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Romania, and Serbia, an area of great dynamic contrast with both picturesque valleys and striking mountain peaks of over 2.500 meters.

Maintenance:
With proper care, Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness for lifelong outdoor use.
•Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally
•Dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally
•To keep sheath leather supple, treat regularly with grease or wax; dry sheath carefully at room temperature if it becomes wet

Sharpening:
Use a diamond tool or a wet stone for sharpening.
•Place knife bevel flat to sharpening tool and work entire blade
•To establish an edge, work one side until you feel a slight burr on opposite side; switch side and repeat until you feel burr on first side •Remove burr by stroking blade gently over sharpening surface on both sides, as if cutting very thin slices--keep bevel flat towards sharpener and move side-to-side until burr is gone

(If blade is very dull or damaged, use a fine-grained grindstone and plenty of water and sharpen until you have a raw edge. Use ample cooling liquid and never sharpen on a dry stone. A hot-ground edge loses its heat treatment and ruins the blade.)
