This little blade has surpassed our expectations on what it was initially designed for.
Designed as the ultimate lightweight backpacking knife many years ago with its main task in mind to tackle all the camp chores of opening packets of food and supplies and cutting up food for the campfire feast.
It morphed through sustained use into a staple of many Sambar hunters from the Alps of Victoria through to the ancient snow capped peaks of NZ.
Effective despite it's small stature, the Helium knife has caped out many trophies as well as performing many simple butchering tasks of harvesting wild free range meat.
It has also found a home on many service personnel's plate carriers and in their kit loadout due to its low print and ability to perform when called upon. Highly recommended for those who like a small, efficient blade.
