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.
This axe was developed for an SOF (Special Operations Forces) medical unit attached to an Army Special Operations Unit. The design is used for breaching, evasion/escape and combat. The hole in the head is to attach a carabiner so the rear spike can be used as a hook for climbing.
The head is formed from 80CrV2 carbon steel with a protective Caswell finish. Overall length is approximately 13-1/4 inches. The cutting edge is approximately 2-1/2 inches. From spike to cutting edge measures 6 inches.
Walnut scales are set on a full tang. The tapered tang enhances power in a stroke and distributes the majority of the weight to the head, making it possible to cut or break through cross beams. The axe features a spike on the back of the head that can serve as a hole punch for creating an entry point for the "can opener" on the end of the handle. Functioning as a portable "Jaws of Life" this extraction tool has proven its effectiveness to law enforcement, first responders and rescue workers, as well as to the team for which it was designed.
Includes a felt lined, Kydex carrier with nylon webbing belt hanger.
