Helle Saga Siglar


Helle is proud to release the Saga Siglar Knife based on the historical Viking utility knife design originally sold to help finance Ragnar Thorseth’s round the world voyage in 1983.

Like its brother the Viking, the Saga Siglar is a replication of a historical Viking utility knife from the ninth century. In 1983, Norwegian explorer Ragnar Thorseth approached Helle to create a knife that would help raise funds to finance a trip around the world in a hand-built replica of a 1000-year-old wooden Viking long ship. Helle was tasked with re-creating a Viking age belt knife that would match the craftsmanship and historical significance of the ship.
