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.
The WKII Tactical Cleaver was developed for Army Special Operations. The design is for woodcraft, combat and breaching. This tool has tremendous chopping power with a lot of cutting edge -- making it superior to either an axe or knife in many heavy cutting applications.
The blade is made from 80CrV2 carbon steel and features a non-reflective Caswell finish. A top spike provides plenty of piercing power while a large cutting edge will take care of any large chopping tasks.
The handle is dyed maple wood with a leather wrap to provide additional grip. The handle is well rounded to fill out the hand completely. A lanyard can be easily attached if desired.
The knife includes a quick release Kydex carrier with a bungee retainer for easy access.
