Description: Mastersmith Daniel Winkler created the Winkler Knives line in 2010. It is an alternate approach to an established tradition. Winkler Knives is the result of processes Daniel Winkler developed 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 touchmark.
The Pathfinder is a full-sized fixed blade. It is the result of an epic and laborious collaboration between the Winkler Knives team and Mastersmith Jason Knight. Jason's style is immediately recognizable so it's no surprise these are expected to be a very popular collaboration! Jason's maker's mark is on the left side of the blade. The Winkler Knives mark is on the right side of the blade.
The Blue Ridge Hunter is perfect for those looking for a small but rugged fixed blade. The blade is formed from 3/16" 80CRV2 carbon steel with a non-glare Caswell finish. Sculpted maple scales are set on the full tang, which has been skeletonized to reduce overall weight. Gen 2 Blue Ridge Hunters have a tang that meets evenly with the scales whereas the rounded tang on a Gen 1 Blue Ridge Hunter is proud of the scales. The handle is completed with a lanyard hole. This unique Blue Ridge Hunter features a relic finish which brings a higher contrast to the handle.
The versatile leather-covered Kydex sheath can be worn vertically or horizontally for right- or left-hand draw with simple adjustments. Adding a MALICE CLIP, makes this sheath fully MOLLE compatible.
