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.
For those wanting a somewhat longer knife, Daniel developed the WK II Field Knife. This knife is made from 3/16" thick, 80CrV2 carbon steel. A Caswell finish is both non-reflective and provides some protection from rust.
The handle is formed from tribal marked walnut scales set on a distal tapered tang for excellent balance. The scales have been gently rounded to fill the hand nicely.
The ambidextrous Kydex-lined sheath can be worn vertically or horizontally with minor adjustments.
