The Helle Scandi knives are world class cutters for all kinds of tasks. The perfect knife does not exist and therefor it is about finding the perfect combinations. I am not a survivalist in the
outdoors like many today perfects. I am not a believer in one tool for survival and I am very confident that an axe, a nice scandi and SAKs/Multi-tools are the ultimate survival tools for the cutting tasks.
“Even thousands of years ago men had more than one tool with them”
There are several things in the nature that can be used for sharpening an edge.
If you bring a sharpening stone then you have a great extra help. Something to make fire with and then you have already taken the first steps learning to survive in the outdoors.
I know about Bronze-Age tools and Iron-Age tools and the development of the scandi knife. It is a wonderful invention. The Helle Brand is a knife that carries this heritage. It is about the abilities to cut and to have a safe, reliable
handle with a safe carry. A tool that can be used for everything and that is the “Scandi heritage”. The heritage is a cutting tool and most of these tasks involves precision cutting. Not to forget the beautiful looks they have…
It is about the edge when cutting food, dressing animals or carving. When you make things you do not need to use much force. The danger with modern philosophies of survival seems to involve using a
knife for hard batoning, bending with much strength and abusing it. Why? For me it is more about making sure that the edge is razor sharp and use it like tools shall be used. The philosophy of a Swiss Army Knife is absolutely not about abuse as well. It is
about using it correct. So my advice for professionals is to show perfect combinations instead. This can be an axe, fixed blade and SAK for example.
