Helle of Norway Honors Tradition with Limited Edition Knife for Father’s Day 2015

Holmedal, Norway – (April 17, 2015) –Helle of Norway is proud to unveil this year’s limited edition Father’s Day knife — the Turmann. Helle maintains the traditional methods of knife making to create one-of-a-kind models that can be passed down from generation to generation. 

83-years ago two brothers, Steinar and Sigmund Helle took up the age-old Nordic tradition of handcrafting naturally beautiful, yet rugged outdoor knives. Since then, the Helle way of crafting knives has been passed down from master craftsmen for generations. As Torodd Helle says, “No machine can ever replace skilled hands.” Each year for Father’s Day, Helle honors this tradition by issuing a limited number of heirloom knives from their collection.

For 2015 Helle has issued 200 consecutively numbered Turmann knives in the USA. The Turmann is a classic Nordic outdoorsmen’s knife with a generously proportioned, curly birch handle that fits comfortably in hand. The flat ground, drop point 3-inch blade made of Helle’s renowned triple laminated steel is razor sharp and easy to maintain. Like all Helle knives, the Turmann comes with its own leather sheath. The Turmann’s sheath, which has a black counter-stitch, is fitted with a keeper strap, which secures the knife in place. 

Helle’s handmade knives are a testament to tradition, a lifelong outdoor companion to be passed down for generations. The natural materials illuminated by 45 different manual processes ensures each Helle knife has its own unique look, perfect for even the most discerning fathers.


  • Blade material: Triple laminated stainless steel
  • Blade length: 3-inch
  • Handle material: Curly birch
  • Handle length: 3.75-inches
