When it comes to survival knives, there’s no such thing as too sharp. Helle knows this well, which is why they’ve developed the Didi Galgalu Survival Knife with a stainless-steel blade designed to cut through any obstacle in your path.


The Didi Galgalu is named after the desert in Northern Kenya, a harsh environment where only the toughest frontiersmen survive. The knife is made with an African Kiaat wood and Vulcanfibre handle, Scandinavian stainless-steel ground blade and a genuine leather sheath.


It stands at 129 millimeters and weighs only 193 grams, so it won’t weigh you down when you’re trekking through the woods.


Helle has always had a reputation for developing beautifully crafted knives, but until now never had a real contender in the bushcraft market. The Didi Galgalu was made to serve that need and it seems to excel in every way.


Outdoorsman looking for a sturdy blade that can be used out on a hike or camping trip will be more than satisfied with this guy, though we can’t be sure how much wear and tear it’ll take until it’s been in the field a little longer.


You can learn more about the Didi Galgalu on Helle’s website and search for retailers in your area.

Spain’s Renfe Talgo High-Speed Train

Europe is known for its high-speed train travel, a mode of transportation that can take you across the continent in a flash. In Spain, Renfe’s “Talgo” can propel you across the country with speeds between 99 to 124 mph. The Taglo train can cut your transit time almost in half; for example, traveling from Barcelona to Valencia by car or bus can take up to six hours, but a seat onboard the Talgo train can reduce this travel time to 3.5 hours.
