Highest quality folding knife I've seenI bought this knife on a whim, looking for a folding knife that should last through the ages.. I believe I've found it! The Skåla, hand-forged by Helle family knife masters of Norway, is a thing of beauty. The picture provided here doesn't do this knife any justice. The triple-laminated stainless steel blade is perfect, holds an amazing edge, sharp enough to shave with right out of the box, and seems to be amazingly rust-resistant. I have yet to put it to the test in the field but the folding mechanism seems more durable than any folding knife I've seen to date. The cocobolo wood handle appears much more lustrous than the picture provided. The sheath is a very fitting and durable all leather button style sheath with a metal "Helle" button to secure the knife. If you're looking for a very aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting folding knife made by a very reputable company then look no further.

Beautiful knife!I purchased this knife a couple of weeks ago and I LOVE it! This is my second Helle knife, they are an incredibly sound knife. Solid heavy blade even in this folding style the knife has some heft. The handle is gorgeous and very comfortable to hold. The knife is great for many applications, however if you are trying to travel light while backpacking or hiking this knife may be too much. Otherwise its an awesome knife!
