Helle has announced the Kletten their first knife that they consider to be a heirloom quality gentleman’s pocket knife and is made to be passed down through the generations.

The outdoors always provides our inspiration, from the natural materials we use to how we create our designs. Our first everyday carry knife needed to be a small yet functional design, one that stays true to our Nordic heritage and craft.
— Jan Steffen - Helle, production manager

For over 80 years, Helle’s production focused on traditional fixed-blade knives. In 2010 Helle introduced the best selling Dokka, the brand’s first folding knife. In 2017, Helle released a second larger folding knife with the Bleja. To address the demand for a smaller Scandinavian style knife, the Kletten is designed as an everyday carry, pocket-sized knife for outdoor enthusiasts.
