Daniel Winkler, the designer of Winkler Knives II, is one of the most dedicated and talented makers of elite, military-grade knives with an emphasis on special ops and outdoorsmen. Navy SEALs and other specialized military personnel trust Winkler's American-made knives to meet their needs on dangerous missions. The Winkler Blue Ridge Hunter Knife with a maple handle and a Caswell-finished blade is an exceptional fixed blade knife from Winkler's collection. The Blue Ridge is a smaller version of the popular Belt Knife, designed for easier use and transport.
At an impressive 8.25-inch total length with a 4-inch blade, and weighing in at 5.5 ounces, the Winkler Blue Ridge Hunter is perfectly balanced and feels great in your hand. Made with only the highest quality materials, this Winkler knife features an 80CRV2 Carbon Steel blade with a black Caswell finish. The Caswell adds rust resistance to the carbon steel blade and makes the steel non-reflective, which is vital when concealment is important. Using 80CRV2 high carbon steel gives the blade elite flexibility, toughness and edge retention at a significantly lower price point than alloy steel.
This Winkler outdoor knife has a hand-sculpted maple handle scales with a full tang construction. Stabilized maple wood knife handles are durable and offer an aesthetic beauty many knife enthusiasts prefer. In addition, the Winkler Blue Ridge Hunter also includes an attractive custom-made black leather sheath that hooks to your belt, a filed thumb rest on the blade spine for a secure grip, a lanyard hole in the handle for hanging or carry and an integral guard. These features improve the overall safety, comfort, and functionality for the user.
The Winkler Blue Ridge Hunting Knife is an essential companion for the avid hunter, outdoorsman or members of the military. As with all of his warrior-inspired knives and axes, it exemplifies the authentic craftsmanship and custom functional design that Winkler Knives are known for.

Lifetime knife collector, Registered Maine Guide, Certified Wildlife Tracker, and US Army Soldier. This knife fits the bill for all applications, without trying to be something it is not. For EDC, it conceals very well as the sheath rides high and comfortably with a low profile design. It is silent on draw, smooth and simple, and incredibly well balanced. I could go on ad nauseam with superlatives and praise, practical, tactical, and outdoor applications. Bottom line, this is the best knife I have ever owned and will be my old standby edc for the rest of my life. I just don’t see how it can get any better than this.
This knife is excellent and very well made

The Winkler Blue Ridge Hunter is the nicest knife I own. Wicked edge, wicked aesthetics, and wicked sheath. Also, KnifeArt had one of the fastest shipping speeds I’ve ever experienced. 2 business days to Canada.
