Helle Elg Knife – Father’s Day Giveaway

Helle Elg Knife Giveaway

The Limited Edition Elg (Elk) knife from Helle of Norway was designed with Father’s Day in mind. It’s not a model that’s going to be around forever and thanks to my very good friends at Sport Hansa, the US distributor for Helle Knives, I have a brand new boxed Elg knife to giveaway to one lucky reader.

(Note: The naming of the knife as Elg came from Mr. Helle who confirmed that it means Elk. So, apparently the translation is a bit of a grey area because there are no moose in Norway.)

I recently had a Mother’s Day giveaway, so it seems only fair that we do one for the dads and what dad doesn’t like a beautifully made, hand-crafted knife.

Every Helle knife is made to withstand the stresses and strains that a knife is subjected to outdoors. Helle upholds its traditions of craftsmanship and quality rather than large product lines and automated production. Skilled knife specialists take pride in making the Helle brand synonymous with quality.

  • Grind: Scandi
  • Overall Length: 8.5 inches
  • Blade Thickness: 0.13 inches

Here is exactly what one lucky reader will be getting, it’s a $100 value! Entry is going to be slightly different, and you’ll have multiple ways to enter in order to have the best possible chance of winning.

Helle Elg Knife Giveaway

For this giveaway I’m trying something new, something that will hopefully make managing the giveaway a lot less manual work for me than it has been with previous giveaways – especially knives!

All you have to do to enter is to click on one of the multiple options on the widget below to enter. All of the entries will automatically be collected starting now and will be open until midnight on Father’s Day (June 17th). I will pick a winner randomly from all of the eligible entries. The winner will have one week to claim their prize. If they don’t a new winner will be drawn.

Note: As always, if you’re active duty military and deployed and are unable to complete the entry methods using the widget below, simply shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get ya entered in.

I’d like to thank Matt and Garrett at Sport Hansa for their continued support and for providing me with this superb limited edition knife giveaway for Father’s Day.

    Wow whoever invented this Rafflecopter thing is a genius. I could see a lot of small enthusiast sites using it. BTW, thanks for the giveaway Brian.

    • Been meaning to try this for months now, finally made the effort (which was minimal). It has a nice backend dashboard/console that easily lets me track the entries AND is integrated with Random.org for picking a winner – how cool is that!?!

      • sygyzy

        Can’t beat it. Most sites I know feed the entries into Random.org anyway. How convenient.

    fyi Elg = Moose

    • Whoops! I’ll fix that, thanks :)

      Funny how a name can get screwed up, isn’t it? Our “elk” were misnamed by first Europeans thinknig they saw moose. The two species don’t look anything alike, but there you go.

    • The naming of the knife as Elg came from Mr. Helle who confirmed that it means Elk. So, apparently the translation is a bit of a grey area because there are no moose in Norway?

    My first thought on seeing the knife was that line from the Crocodile Dundee movie : “That’s not a knife” *whips out huge knife* THIS is a knife! lol

    • Ha! It’s really not that bit and is very light weight. On my belt I hardly noticed I had it there. It is razor sharp though :)

    Elg means both moose and elk in Norwegian. There are no elk in Norway but there quite a few moose (which is why many Norway stickers feature the moose warning sign).

    • Ha! Thanks for the clarification. Makes more sense now!
