what are Scandi or nordic Knives?

I will begin with Nordic knives. nordic knives are knives originating from Sweeden, Finnland, Or Norway. They have a very distinct style. Many people know them as bushcrafting knives. They have a single beveled edge meaning that from the spine they only have one change of angle. Alot of knives today have what is called a secondary bevel. That is where there is two changes of angle, coming down from the spine there will be a main bevel and right at the edge there is a second change of anglle. Scandi stands for scandinavian and when we talk about a scandi grind it is a single bevel, this makes for an absolute razor edge. Scandi knives are very easy to sharpen, since you dont have to worry about holding the same angle. Scandinavian knives traditionally have a combination of birch bark, curly birch wood, leather and Reindeer antler for handle materials. They are very classy knife.

I would say my favorite Helle knives are pretty much all of them!

Comment by Shlomo ben Maved on March 7, 2015 at 15:46

My two favourite Helle are the Utvaer and the Les Stroud designed Tamagami.  A solid mention for the Taiga as well.

I had bought two of the Vikings (to support the Longship Voyage) when I was in Norway and gave it to two of my daughters who really liked the design (which I didn't).
