After having spend two vacations in Sweden and this year in Iceland I felt I needed to have a scandi knife. My choice fell on the Helle Sigmund. Beautiful knife and sheath.
Basically I am a convex full tang guy so getting this knife took a leap of faith. I could have opted for the Helle Temagami but this knife looks better and is more of a traditional design.
So far I like it. I used it in the backyard cutting up some wood and took it in the woods this afternoon. Cutting up stuff and even baton with it. Sorry, I can't help myself. I am a Bark River guy.
I know using this knife needs some rethinking. More axe thinking in fact. It cannot do what my Aurora LT and B1 LT can.
But in it's own right it is a very capable knife. It came razor sharp and it feathers like no other knife I've ever had.
The outer steel is very soft though. Already it is full of scratches. But then again I didn't really like the high polish look and I think it looks better now
Ive had some scandi knives in the past but sold them pretty soon after buying them. But this one I will keep.
Here it is together with my BR Aurora LT.
