Product Details and Description

Helle Bleja Folding Lock Knife - 83mm Blade, Curly Birch Handle, Leather Sheath

The Bleja has been in development for over 3-years, taking time to perfect a new locking mechanism with full liners for a strong and reliable utility folder.

The blade of the Helle Algonquin is made of their top quality Swedish Tri Laminate steel and is Scandi ground to make it a very easy knife to maintain on a stone or in the field. A scandinavian grind essentially means the whole bevel of the knife forms the edge; there is no secondary bevel and this means you can simply lie the whole bevel on a stone when sharpening making finding the correct angle for maintaining a razor sharp finish very easy.

The blade is 85mm (3.5") of razor sharp laminated steel which folds away into a beautiful Curly Birch handle. 
The Bleja has been in development for over 3-years, taking time to perfect a new locking mechanism with full liners for a strong and reliable utility folder.

All the standard features of a Helle fixed blade are tucked into this compact yet robust mid-sized utility knife for everyday carry. Featuring a drop point blade made of Helle’s renowned triple laminated stainless steel with a razor sharp Scandinavian grind and natural curly birch wood. The countered, slim handle yields positive control for carving.

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.
