I’ve never seen Every Third Thursday before but it reminds me of Orange County Choppers. Well maybe if the Teutel’s were laid back snowboarders instead of angry bikers. In this episode the guys from Signal Snowboards build a one-of-a-kind snowboard for Steve Abel of Abel Reels featuring a built-in completely working fly rod, net, cork top, and custom graphics. They don’t stop there of course, they take the entire setup fishing before shredding some half pipes on the hill!
Helle is a Norwegian based knife maker well known for their superb craftsmanship. Since its founding in 1932, Helle’s philosophy hasn’t changed: quality handcrafted knives made by skilled craftsmen. Both the blade and the handle of every knife are handcrafted by a skilled Norwegian craftsman, some with decades of experience, making each knife truly one-of-a-kind.
Helle Alden – MSRP: $119
This knife features a 106mm (4.17in) long blade made of stainless Sandvik 12C27 steel with full tang. The handle of the Alden is made of curly birch and includes a small finger guard with two stainless steel fittings. Weighing in at 145g (5.1oz), the Alden is well balanced and designed to fit the hand perfectly.
I’ve eyed up a beautiful cork-handled Helle Hellefisk filet knife for a while now. Every time I pick up a Helle knife I’m always impressed by the construction and I’m blown away at the prices. I’ve consistently seen knives for twice as much that didn’t even look half as good.
Helle Hellefisk – $79.95
