Description: Mastersmith Daniel Winkler created 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.
Reports from the field often relate how knives are used for chores other than cutting in emergency situations. Glass breaking and prying seem to be recurring "non-intended use" situations, thus the development of the Winkler Knives II Spike.
As a conventional knife, the Spike is made from 3/16" 52100 carbon steel. Many knifemakers and users feel that 52100 is among the best, if not the best carbon steel for edge holding. It takes and holds an incredibly keen edge. The desert camo KG finish is a baked-on treatment that is impervious to rust. The drop point design means that the blade's energy is centered, thus minimizing drift. Handle contours make it possible to comfortably reverse grip when utilizing the spike for its intended uses. Micarta scales provide a sure, comfortable, non-slip grip. The handle is finished with a spike, integral to the tang.
The knife is accompanied by a desert camo toned ambidextrous leather-covered Kydex belt sheath.
