The Helle Nying is maybe our most classic Helle knife. Short and stubby, and with a distinct design like no other. Some consider it to be ugly, but for the many who use it is a loved tool for long carving sessions by the campfire.

The Helle Nying has received awards for its unique and classic design, just as much as it has been rejected by many. Still it is one of our true, long term friends to bring on the belt. Proudly in production at Helle since 1977 and made in more than 1 million copies, which is a lot for a small factory like Helle.

The handle is generously proportioned to give a good grip and control over the blade. A slight fingerguard to guide your hand to a safe handle position, even if held close to the blade. This is a knife used for quality time and carving.

Nying comes in an attractive leather sheath that has a design cutout with the resemblance of fire flames. Fitted with a keeper strap that engages on the stud on the knife pommel. A suspension strap of leather keeps it dangling on your belt Norwegian style.

A knife for generations

My grandmother bought this knife in 1978-79. The knife followed her for countless trips and holidays to Norway, helping her with everything from Salmon to pike and even in the kitchen or at lunch, at the side of a road. She gave it to my daughter just before her own death, 90 years old. This summer the knife is going back to Norway on new adventures, accompanying my daughter. I even got one myself from the factory outlet. My own Nying has the most stunning play and glow in the wood. Nothing like the ones you get in the shops. Great small knife. Perfect for most everyday tasks and perfect for a father and his daughter.

Love this ugly little knife

I kept looking at this knife and watching reviews online…
It’s my fidget knife that lives on one of my bike packing bikes. It has come in handy so many times. If you like to whittle on stick while taking in the atmosphere of a camp setting this is the perfect little knife.
Handle just feels natural it has plenty of handmade mojo.

Great Knife

The shorter blade and large handle make for a great whittling knife that is easy on the wrist.
