Description: Daniel Winkler became a fulltime knifemaker in 1988 and received accreditation as an American Bladesmith Society master bladesmith in 1993. He has spent more than three decades studying and perfecting the nuances and handmade knives. Winkler Knives is a custom manufacturing operation that represents the evolution of Mastersmith Daniel Winkler’s knifemaking expertise coupled with the needs and field experience of Tier 1 Special Operations Teams from around the world.
This tool was crafted in the Winkler Knives shop in Northwestern North Carolina by skilled Blue Ridge Mountain artisans. It was created to provide unfailing performance and to last a lifetime. The Winkler Knives touch mark represents their unwavering commitment to producing the highest quality knives, axes, and breaching tools available.
Winkler/Sayoc RnD Close Quarters Hawk is an adaptation of the field-proven collaboration between edged weapons expert Rafael Kayanan and Daniel Winkler. Just like the originals, the Close Quarters Winkler/Sayoc R&D Hawk is made with edge awareness, economy of motion and mobility in mind. The primary difference is the overall length of 10 3/4", making these axes perfect for tight spaces. The head measures approximately 5 1/2 in length, with a cutting edge of 2-1/8 inches. Designed so that the heaviest area rests at the head, the hawk's full tang is skeletonized and tapered reducing overall weight.
An upward curved end provides a reinforce grip. The haft is formed from dyed curly maple. Tribal markings both provide visual interest and a sure grip.
The versatile felt lined sheath is formed from Kydex with a belt hanger.
Made by craftsmen in the USA.
