The Wabakimi is a medium-sized, well-balanced knife small enough for hip carry, with an amply sized handle to make precise cutting and long carving sessions comfortable and efficient. The new Wabakimi knife fits between the larger, best selling Temagami (2010), a practical wilderness knife, and the light and compact Mândra (2017) neck knife. The Wabakimi combines the advantages of the Temagami’s ergonomic handle and long, pointed blade with the Mândra’s rounded shape. Featuring a three-quarter, partial tang reinforced with two robust pins, the handle is made from curly birch wood with a lanyard hole and a 3.3-inch drop point blade using Helle’s renowned triple laminated steel.
“The Wabakimi wilderness helped shaped my path and set in motion a life celebrating nature and wilderness. With these experiences in mind, and working closely with my friends at Helle, we have created a knife worthy of this remote, wild place.” - Les Stroud
