Helle GT is a longtime favorite and has been in the Helle line since 1997. It has a big fanbase in many parts of the world for its characteristic look mixed with traditional Scandinavian knife design.
The GT has a barrel shape handle suitable for most hand sizes and is long enough to fit big hands. The aluminum fingerguard offers a safe protection from the triple laminated stainless-steel blade. The blade has a classic scandi grind that has been hand polished to offer an out-of-the-box hair popping sharpness.
The knife comes with a snap type leather sheath of high-quality leather.
The name GT is short for the German Globetrotter company, which during a visit at the factory contributed in the design by adding some adjustments to an earlier Gunnar Lothe design.
