Helle Kletten K - folding knife - 55mm triple laminated blade, Kebony handle
The Kletten K is an alternative version of Helles smallest blade.

Using the newly invented kebony technique Helle has been able to create a stronger handle in an attractive dark finish.

The Kebony techique is a Norwegian innovation whereby wood is stabilized using waste biomass, making traditional northern woods denser and darker in the same process. The result is a sustainable wood that outperforms traditional, exotic hardwoods. The scales on the new Kletten K are made from kebonized maple, which leaves the patterning of the maple intact while strengthening the already dense structure of the maple further.

The Kletten K blade is 55mm long with a drop point design made out of Helles triple laminated stainless steel to ensure strength, durability and corrosion resistance. Attached to the blade is a curly birch handle (80mm) reinforced with steel liners and a stable lockback design.

When extended the Kletten feels like a small fixed blade knife due to its lockback design combined with the sharpness that has been aquired using a razor-sharp Scandinavian flat grind makes the Kletten is the perfect utility knife when your on the go.

The contoured handle combined with the small finger guard help to protect the users hand while providing a comfortable grip to allow for the maximum dexterity and handeling of the blade.

Brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle started knife production in the old forge on their farm in Holmedal, Norway, in 1932. Then, as today, much of the production is done manually. The philosophy remains the same: Quality craftsmanship is best preserved by skilled craftsmen - those with extensive experience and knowledge who still take pride in making each and every Helle knife unique.

Many Helle Knives have a unique triple laminated stainless steel blade. The core is made of high alloy steel which gives it a lasting, razor-sharp edge. The outer two layers are of stainless steel (18/8) to protect the blade against breakage and corrosion, while the high carbon core still provides a superb cutting edge.

Knives are tastefully presented in a special presentation cardboard tube box, with a sheath, information and a soft polishing cloth. Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness as a lifelong outdoors companion. But it is still important to take care of your knife.

The Handle. dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally.

The Blade. Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally.

The Sheath. Will retain its colour if it is not left in direct sunlight for long periods. Impregnate occasionally with a colourless non-acidic grease or wax such as saddle grease or Dubbin. This will keep the leather supple and retain its glow.
