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.
This knife is very similar to the standard issue model Daniel Winkler is currently providing to active duty operators within the Naval Special Warfare Unit. The blade is formed from 3/16" 80CRV2 carbon steel with a non-glare Caswell black oxide finish. A full tapered tang means great balance and reduced weight. The hand sculpted, slip-resistant, layered laminate handle is set on the tapered full tang. A hole in the pommel allows for a lanyard to be attached for added security.
The versatile Boltaron lined leather sheath can be worn vertically or horizontally for right- or left-hand draw with simple adjustments and features a liner to reduce noise signature when drawn.
Made in the USA.
