Helle knives are designed to retain their sharpness as a lifelong outdoors companion. But it is still important to take care of your knife.
The Handle. Dry the handle with a soft cloth if wet and wax occasionally.
The Blade. Wipe the blade with a soft cloth if wet and treat with grease occasionally.
Use a diamond tool or a wet stone for sharpening. Place the knife bevel flat to the sharpening tool and work the entire blade. Work one side until you can feel a slight burr on the opposite side. Switch side and repeat the procedure until you feel the burr on the first side. You have now established an edge.
Remove the burr by stroking the blade gently over the sharpening surface on both sides, as if cutting very thin slices. Keep the bevel flat towards the sharpener and move from side to side until the burr is gone.
If the blade is very dull or damaged, use a fine-grained grindstone and plenty of water and sharpen until you have a raw edge. Use much cooling liquid and never sharpen on a dry stone. A hot-ground edge looses its heat treatment and ruins the blade.

I’m going to give this folder a big thumbs up. Helle does not scrimp on any quality issue with this knife. It locks up tight as a drum and is ready for heavy use. The steel is thick and comes razor sharp. The belt sheath is a really nice item, and keeping this on your belt out in the woods is a simple task. Your knife is there, and ready to use, just as you would a fixed blade. The handle is beautiful and really fills my hand. I love it.
