The Taiga is a large thicker camping / butchering knife.

The Taiga's blade is made out of Helle's triple layered stainless steel to provide strenth, druabilty and corrosion resistance.  With a blade lenth of 126mm attached to a handle (124mm)  made from a birch the Taiga is more than adequate for your next camping trip or to be used to cut up game.

The contoured handle combined with the small finger guard help to protect the users hand while providing a comfortable grip to allow for the maximum dexterity and handeling of the blade.

The Taiga comes with a traditional pouch sheath with a loop.

Maintenance: Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness as a lifelong outdoors companion. But it is still important to take care of your knife and its sheath.

The Handle: Dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally.

The Sheath: The leather needs to be impregnated occasionally with colourless impregnation agent (grease or wax) to keep supple. Dry the sheath carefully in room temperature if it becomes wet.

The Blade: Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally.

Sharpening: Use a diamond tool or a wet stone for sharpening. Place the knife bevel flat to the sharpening tool and work the entire blade. Work one side until you can feel a slight burr on the opposite side. Switch side and repeat the procedure until you feel the burr on the first side. You have now established an edge. Remove the burr by stroking the blade gently over the sharpening surface on both sides, as if cutting very thin slices. Keep the bevel flat towards the sharpener and move from side to side until the burr is gone. If the blade is very dull or damaged, use a fine-grained grindstone and plenty of water and sharpen until you have a raw edge. Use much cooling liquid and never sharpen on a dry stone. A hot-ground edge looses its heat treatment and ruins the blade.
