Initial thoughts on the Helle Bleja Knife

Initial thoughts on the Helle Bleja Knife

Helle Bleja Knife

Knives are tools.  They can be used to cut open packaging, sharpen a firestick or cut steak at dinner. Helle is a Norwegian knife company that creates amazing knives, and I am fortunate enough to be reviewing their Bleja knife.  It is one of two folding knives that they make.

I have continued to enjoy using the Wenger RangerGrip 90 for daily task as well as on an overnight camping trip.  Most of the time my use consisted of sharpening a pencil, opening a package or other mundane chores, but one particularly hard use was replacing some drawer hangers in my refrigerator.  I first had to get the old ones off each side of the wall and we had glued them in place in an attempt to get them to work.  This worked for about a year but part of the hangers on each side had finally broken and all that was left was a flat plate and then the part that went inside the wall of the fridge.  I ordered 2 new drawer hangers and once they arrived I set about removing the old broken ones.  The glue made removal tough but by using the big knife blade I finally managed to get most of the hanger off the wall.  To read the rest of the update along with the entire review please click here.

The Wenger RangerGrip 90 is a multi-tool knife.  Wenger has a long history of making knives, and in fact, made a multi-tool as far back as 1903.  You can still get the original in their heritage model. The RangerGrip series first appeared in 2009 and the RangerGrip 90 is the latest evolution in this lineup.   Anyways, this is not a little knife.  I discuss the various measurements of the knife in this short video, but at 9 oz it is definitely not a pocket knife. Of course that may explain why it comes with such a nice sheath. To read the rest of the review please click here.
