The Helle Temagami Knife is available in both a stainless steel blade and high carbon blade. This is the carbon steel Temagami – originally designed in 2011 and updated in 2012. The Temagami has a semi-full tang which provides extra strength which is often associated with bushcraft knives. The tang is exposed on both the top and pommel end, but is covered by curly Burch wood on the handle on the finger side. The drop point blade is made of triple laminated carbon steel.
Helle recommends to wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with mineral oil occasionally – a great practice for any high carbon blade.
