Description: ABS Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler introduced the Woodsman at the 2017 Blade Show.
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.
Based on the tremendously popular WKII Neck Knife, the Bottle Opener Neck Knife fulfills a need for an easily concealable working backup knife with an additional bonus. The 80CRV2 carbon steel blade has a black KG finish and has plenty of cutting edge for maximum efficiency. Daniel's been testing a lot of steels and he reports that 80CRV2 is the best performing steel he's tried in 25+ years of knifemaking!
The easily recognizable profile of the handle ensures a confident transition to this knife from your Winkler II large blade. Adding a bottle opener to the end of the handle adds yet another practical purpose.
The Kydex sheath is built for maximum versatility. The sheath is designed to be worn with a chain carry. It can be worn around the neck or as a dangle sheath attached to a belt or loop. To remove the knife, depress the finger retainer as you draw the knife from the sheath. When you replace the knife in the sheath, the retainer will click into place holding the knife securely in the sheath.
Whether you find yourself in vast wilderness or the concrete jungle, this handy neck knife is always ready to lend a helping hand when no other is forthcoming.
