Temagami CA - Les Stroud Design
Temagami CA is a state-of-the-art outdoor knife and the first full tang knife made by Helle, combining the knowledge of knife use by a true outdoorsman and the history and craftmanship in the Helle design team.
The Temagami CA comes with a half-full tang construction, where the blade is visible along the spine of the handle but not towards the fingers. This makes the knife better to use in the cold climates in the far north. It also gives the knife extra strength, thanks to the thickness of the tang.
The curly birch handle is hand sanded to a satin finished and has a shape made to be used for long and hard work. The full tang blade is kept in place by two thick brass rivets and a pipe rivet.
The knife is made with in two versions, where this knife is made with the Triple laminated Carbon Helle steel. Sharpened to a super sharp edge right out of the box. A carbonsteel blade offers a unique sharpness. On the other hand, it will rust on anyone not caring for the blade.
The knife comes with a classic leather sheath for belt carry.

The Temagami represents the starting point in the collaboration with Les Stroud (AKA Survivorman). A collaboration that has developed through the years and become a close friendship, much thanks to our shared love for nature and the life outdoors.
The design takes inspiration from the classic Helle designs and moves it forward to a new era in the Helle design philosophy, incorporating the full tang construction in the production line.
