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 Winklerís knifemaking expertise coupled with the needs and field experience of Tier 1 Special Operations Teams from around the world.
This tool was crafter in the Winkler Knives shop in Northwestern North Carolina by skilled Blue Ridge Mountain artisans. It was createed 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.
This knife is very similar to the standard issue model Daniel Winkler is currently providing to active duty operators within the Naval Special Warfare Unit. The blade is formed from 3/16" 80CrV2 carbon steel with a non-glare Caswell finish.
The handle of the Belt Knife is made from tan Micarata and tribal markings. Daniel applied a dark wash on the handle for a high contrast effect. The markings both provide visual interest and a sure grip.
The versatile Kydex lined leather sheath can be worn vertically or horizontally for right- or left-hand draw with simple adjustments.
