Description

Didi Galgalu is a knife made for big adventurers. Designed in collaboration with the Voetspore team and worthy to take on any transcontinental adventure. Unique in both its design and the way it was developed.

The Didi Galgalu is one of the first Helle knives with a full tang construction. The knife has been upgraded for 2021 with a new handle made of Kebony and a newly designed sheath.

The knife itself is fairly big, suitable for medium to large hands. The shape of the handle offers a sturdy and safe grip even if held close to the blade, thanks to the double contoured handle. The handle is held in place by two sturdy brass rivets and a pipe rivet, where you can tie a cord or lanyard of leather.

The blade is thin enough to perform well as a knife should when cutting or carving, yet strong enough for heavier tasks. Shaped and ground with a Scandi grind and sharpened to razor sharpness right out of the box. The Didi has been widely accepted internationally by the bushcraft and outdoor community.

Supplied with a sheath of high-quality leather with a new design for secure carry.

**************

The Didi Galgalu was developed in collaboration with the Voetspore of South Africa.

The Voetspore team has for the last 20 years explored the wilderness of Africa during yearly transcontinental journeys, documented in the TV series with the same name. Many of their adventures carried on for months.

 In 2015, Anders Haglund from the Helle team participated in one of their adventures, traveling from South Africa to northern Kenya to experience the wild Africa firsthand. During this journey, prototypes of the Didi Galgalu were tested and in the evening adjusted by the campfire, using simple tools. This is a knife that has been inspired by the wilderness of Africa in a Scandinavian way.

The name Didi Galgalu is borrowed from the desert with the same name in northern Kenya, seen as many as the last frontier of Africa.
