Norwegian knife maker Helle crafts some of the most beautiful knives the world over. Its latest is particularly special, celebrating the past while making a call to action for the future. The new limited-edition Rein knife honors the company’s heritage and favorite animal: the reindeer. The knife features an ornate handle crafted from reindeer antler, dark oak and leather and serves as a reminder to protect those things we value most.
Since its founding in 1932, Helle has relied upon natural materials, including oak, birch, leather and reindeer antler. The “Rein,” a Norwegian term for reindeer, celebrates that heritage with its multi-material construction. The Rein’s 4.3-in (110-mm) handle is crafted from a combination of sustainably sourced reindeer antler inserts, dark oak and leather, brought together to mimic the earthy multi-tone coloring of reindeer fur.
I think they did a good job makingit a bit blingier, without ruining the function.
