This collection is the result of processes Mastersmith Daniel Winkler developed over the past few years in order to provide edged tools to teams within United States Army Special Operations and US Naval Special Warfare. Winkler Knives II consists of stock removal pieces custom made in Daniel's shop. Each design is born of warriors' experience.
The production process has been thorughly tested and proven in the field. Each piece is custom made in Daniel's shop utilizing stock removal and heat treating procedures he developed specifically for military projects. The steels used are all made in the USA and are proven performers. Handle material choices are the same as those specified by various SOF Teams. Sheaths and carriers are designs resulting from extensive field testing by and feedback from active duty Team Members. These are not “kit” products! Only water jet cutting services based on Daniel's own drawings and specs are outsourced. In place of the DWinkler touchmark used to identify Mastersmith Daniel Winkler's forged work, all stock removal pieces are marked Winkler Knives II.
