The Winkler Belt Knife with a sculptured green micarta handle is, like all Winkler knives, a tough working tool and a beautiful piece of art. Daniel Winkler, since 1988, has created knives that are "American Made, Field Tested", inspired by our nation's frontier period when a man's knife might mean sustenance and survival. Since 2006, Winkler has provided knives for the United States elite Military Special Operations Teams. Winkler belt knives are versatile, tactical fixed-blade knives.
The 80CRV2 Carbon Steel blade on this Winkler belt knife is 4.5 inches in length and extends into a full tapered tang. This tough steel is great for both grinding and forging. This creates a razor-sharp blade with superior toughness that will quickly, cleanly and accurately slice through fibrous materials. The knife blade has a black caswell coating. This coating, used on both guns and knives, is very durable and provides some protection from abrasion and weathering. It also reduces visibility for operations at any time of day.
This fixed-blade belt knife has a sculpted 4.5-inch handle made of green micarta. The sculpted handle provides an exceptionally comfortable and very effective grip. The grip is also enhanced by a thumb rest on the spine. The handle material is an extremely durable substance created from laminated micarta. This material is shaped and sculpted to create a comfortable but tremendously strong handle. At 6.7 ounces, this custom belt knife is surprisingly light for its size, making it easier to wield.
The Winkler Belt Knife is an exceptional and versatile tool, razor-sharp and very tough. The Kydex-lined leather sheath and the lanyard hole in the handle provide a choice in how you choose to carry it, and the sheath can be mounted vertically or horizontally. Like all of Daniel Winkler's knives, this is both a beautiful and a functional example of the knifemaker's art. Each belt knife made in Winkler's North Carolina shop infused with Warrior spirit both past and present.
