As with some other reviewers, my Helle came with a few quirks and imperfections: in my case, none was at all a problem, and to me these small things add character and show signs of the hand-made/finished nature of these knives and natural materials. For example, the bevel grinds of my knife are not perfectly symmetrical, but this does not affect its function in the least (the edge is still fully within the hardened center laminated layer). The blade did not come shaving sharp, but I made it that way after some quality time with water stones and a strop (literally: I partially shaved with it that day with no more than the usual bloodshed :)).
I've gotten the Viking wet and dirty, dropped it on rocks, and carved several objects (spoons, knife handles, stakes, halloween pumpkins etc.) over the past few weeks, and neither the blade nor the handle have suffered anything aside from minor cosmetic damage, and the edge usually comes back to razor sharpness after no more than a stropping. My one complaint is that the handle is a bit too small for my hands for sustained heavy wood carving (I have to grip it tightly to really bear down which leads to fatigue), but for my general carry-around knife to do a bit of everything, it's hard to beat. I love its looks as well: simple, but high quality; handsome, but not too pretty to use hard. I'll be holding onto this one.
