Description: Mastersmith Daniel Winkler founded the Winkler II line in 2010. It is an alternate approach to an established tradition. Winkler Knives II is the result of processes Daniel Winkler developed over the past few years in order to provide axes and knives to teams within United States Army Special Operations and US Naval Special Warfare. Each piece in this collection bears the Winkler Knives II touchmark.
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 special edition features a blade formed from damascus steel, forged from carbon steels. Damascus patterns will vary slightly from one knife to the next. The 3/16" thick blade provides a resilient, long lasting edge. The spine is fileworked for a secure thumb purchase and fine control while choking up. A full tapered tang means great balance. A stained curly maple handle is set on the full tang.
The versatile Kydex lined leather sheath can be worn vertically or horizontally for right- or left-hand draw with simple adjustments.
