Winkler Knives II - Maker of the Navy Seal Belt Knife
A bladesmith since 1988, Daniel Winkler specializes in forged cutlery created in the tradition of a bygone time period. Born from a lifelong interest in early American history and particularly 18th
-century outdoorsmen, Winkler knives capture this warrior spirit and inspiration in every piece. Winkler Knives II is the result of processes Daniel Winkler developed in recent years to provide axes and knives to teams in the United States and Allied Special Operations. These American knives are custom-made in his North Carolina shop with a commitment to excellence in cutlery design and craftsmanship. Each piece in this collection bears the Winkler Knives II mark.
Daniel Winkler Knives presents an array of tools that include belt knives, camp knives, hunting knives, patch knives, axes and special project knives. A Winkler belt knife is truly a sight to behold, with a stout design for use by everyone from woodsmen to Navy SEALs. The 9-inch long Winkler Belt Knife is crafted to feel just right in the user's hands. It has a 4.5-inch blade made of carbon steel with a black finish and micarta, curly maple or rubber handles. Other features of this acclaimed knife include a filed thumb rest for better grip and an integral lock guard to prevent slipping. Another Winkler knife that is ideal for everyday carry is the Winkler Utility Knife. This tool has a 5-inch steel blade with a black finish and full tang construction. It also has partial serrations on the spine of the blade for ropes and wires.
