Inspired by life on the American frontier, Daniel Winkler builds knives and axes for his Winkler Knives II line that draw on the heritage of knife-making while meeting the demanding standards of tactical use. Winkler knives are where primitive beauty meets functional art. That merger of tradition and tactical utility is why Winkler knives are used by special forces groups and were also used in the movie “The Last of the Mohicans.”
The Winkler Belt Knife has a 4.5-inch blade made of carbon steel with a black finish and the knife measures 9 inches long overall. It is carefully crafted to provide a great feel in your hand. It is made with micarta, curly maple or rubber handles. The Winkler Utility Knife has a 5-inch steel blade with a black finish and full tang construction with partial serrations on the spine of the blade. The knife measures 9.75 inches in overall length and comes with a curly maple, micarta or rubber handle. The Winkler Spike measures 10 inches in length and comes with curly maple or micarta handles. All of these knives come with a leather sheath that is lined with kydex.
The Winkler Knives II Combat Axe has a black finish on its carbon steel blade, with a 2.5-inch cutting edge. These axes are designed with elite military units in mind and feel great in the hand. The Combat Axe measures 13.75 inches in total length and comes with a felt-lined kydex sheath. Choose either a composite rubber handle or a premium maple handle.
The knives and axes in the Winkler Knives II line are handmade in the United States. Because of their limited, high-quality production, not all models are available at all times.
