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.
The WK Forest Edge is a user friendly addition to Winkler Knives' offerings. The design reflects the historical influence of Daniel Winkler's forged blades, which translates to form and function. The blade shape is more of a spear point than a drop point, enhancing the knife's versatility in the field or at a campsite. Blade length under 4" meets most daily carry needs.
The blade is 80CrV2 carbon steel -- a steel that takes and holds an incredibly keen edge. A Caswell black oxide finish is both non-reflective and provides limited rust resistance. A skeletonized full tang means great balance.
A stained curly maple handle is set on the full tang and secured using three pins. The scales have been gently rounded to fill your hand nicely. Engraving along the spine offers an easy thumb purchase.
This knife includes a felt lined, leather wrapped Boltaron sheath with a metal belt clip attachment. The sheath is designed for multiple easy carry options
Whether out in the field or in town, If you need a no nonsense, reliable and simple EDC, then the Forest Edge makes the cut.
Handcrafted by artisans in the USA.
