Hello guys, I immediately fell in love with Helle knives - handmade, great steel, and beautiful traditional wooden handles. Knifes are quite affordable too. People are usually very satisfied in reviews (some point out that they broke Helle knife while batoning but why would You do that with hidden tang knife anyway), however the issue I stumble upon frequently is quality control. Few times I saw people reporting they bought bent or chipped knifes. Some guy even said he received another broke knife as a refund, and after posting pictures to Helle's fan page they blocked him. Are this opinions outdated? Did You ever encounter anything like that? Is it safe and worth it to buy a Helle (as there are no similar "classic" trapper looking knifes in that price range) or should I contact some custom knife maker?
