Helle Kvernstein Knife

Made in Norway by Helle, the Kvernstein I think imitates the old style seafarers knife. But the name Kvernstein means "mill stone" in Norwegian. The reason that the knife was named Kvernstein, is quite simple. The pommel of the knife is a stone from a quarry near the Helle factory that has provided mill stones for over a thousand years. The blade has a beautiful mirror polish, leather sheath is really nice, most leather sheath's aren't that great, and you wonder if they were even made for the knife. This one you can tell was made just for this knife it fits great and it looks great. impressed on the top front of the sheath is an image of a quern, a small hand powered grain mill.
