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 SD1 (Standard Duty 1) is the perfect everyday carry fixed blade for hard use situations. The blade measures 3-1/2" with an overall length of 7". This makes the knife easily concealable and legal to carry in most areas with blade length restrictions (check your local knife laws).
The blade is formed from 80CrV2 carbon steel -- a steel that takes and holds an incredibly keen edge. A Caswell finish is both non-reflective and provides limited rust resistance. A full distal tapered spine and tang means great balance. Jimping along the spine offers an easy thumb purchase.
The walnut handle is set on the full tang and secured using two pins. The hand sculpted handle provides a particularly comfortable, non-slip grip. The scales have been gently rounded to fill the hand nicely.
This knife includes a felt lined black Kydex sheath with a belt clip attachment.
Whether out in the field or in town, if you need a no nonsense, reliable and simple EDC, the Standard Duty 1 makes the cut.
