I read about this limited edition Temagami and just had to get one. I used to have the Carbon version but wasn’t really for me it as the carbon blade easily stains. I think this steel one will be better for my needs for camping, hiking and general outdoors use.
No complaints about this knife and I actually like it is not perfect like a factory made knife. Love the feel, look and smell of the curly birch. Not sure if this knife will see a lot of hard use because it is just such a nice knife.
I tried a few of the Helle knives in a store and this Temagami just had the best shape, weight and balance for me. I also like the collaboration with Survivorman and link to Temagami where I have been a few times.
An episode of Survivorman took place in Norway where Les Stroud is stranded in a car in the Norwegian wilderness. The car survival kit contains a knife. As Survivorman calls it ‘a beautiful knife’ and of course is the Helle Temagami. Such a coincidence..!
Information from Helle:
The Temagami 14C28N celebrates the 10-year collaboration between Les Stroud aka Survivorman and Helle and the unveiling of the first Temagami in 2011.
The Limited Edition Temagami 14C28N comes, as the name suggests, with a different steel. It also has a 90-degree sharp spine right out of the box. A sharp spine can be used for many things, one is to light a fire using a ferro rod.
