The Mandra knife was designed and field tested with Les Stroud, a.k.a. "Survivorman". We are proud to present the Mandra, developed by Helle and Les Stroud - "Survivorman"

In order to perfect the design of this newest Helle knife, we travelled to the raw, remote and overwhelmingly beautiful country of Romania working alongside Les Stroud on his latest Survivorman episodes.

The location of the expedition was situated in the Carpathian, a 1.450 kilometre mountain range extending through Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Romania and Serbia. An area of great dynamic contrast with both picturesque valleys and striking mountain peaks of over 2.500 metres.

An area of untouched nature, the Carpathian Mountains have impressive flora and fauna in addition to presenting the largest populations of brown bears, wolves, chamois and lynxes in Europe.

From a cultural perspective this area is the border between Europe and Asia with the famous Transylvanian Dracula legend based on the Ottoman controversy between the Romanians and the Turks.

During Les’ time in Romania, early prototypes of The Mândra were utilized in the Survivorman Romania episode. Adjustments and refinements were then integrated into the final design with Anders working directly on location with Les when he returned from his film excursion.

“We are extremely proud to present a brand new Les Stroud knife” notes Anders Haglund, head of international marketing with Helle. “In fact; the word Mândra literally means proud, and the new knife is named for the hilly peak where Les was found by the Salvamont rescue party during filming Survivorman in Romania”.

Les Stroud continues: “Put to the test during my intense filming of Survivorman and inspired by the raw and breathtaking nature of Romania, I now have the pleasure of unveiling my latest knife collaboration with Anders Haglund and Helle knives; The Mândra.”

Brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle started knife production in the old forge located on their farm in Holmeland, Norway, in 1932. Then, as today, much of the production is done manually. The philosophy remains the same: Quality craftmanship is best preserved by skilled craftsmen - those with extensive experience and knowledge who still take pride in making each and every Helle knife unique. Many Helle knives have a unique triple laminated stainless steel blade. The core is made of high carbon steel which gives it a lasting, razor-sharp edge. The outer two layers are of stainless steel(18/8) to protect the blade against breakage and corrosion, while the high carbon core provides a superb cutting edge.
