We worked with Daniel Winkler to bring out a damascus belt knife and he really did a fantastic job on this blade. A key feature of this knife is the American-made damascus steel blade with a drop point shape. The top of the blade spine has a thumb ramp and file work.
The handle on this Winkler Belt knife is full tang construction and feel extremely comfortable in hand - great for your next adventure. The black canvas micarta is durable and impact resistant, allowing the user a secure grip in a variety of environments.
The Damascus fixed blade knife is completed with a custom made leather sheath that is kydex lined for security and a form fit. The sheath has a variety of mounting options from vertical to horizontal. Daniel Winkler knives 2 are made for elite military units with an emphasis on special ops.
I have been very fortunate to be able to acquire my fifth Winkler knife, and my second KnifeArt Winkler Exclusive, with one of these beauties.
What a wonderful fixed-blade knife. I really like the styling of a Daniel Winkler Belt Knife, to me it is an American classic.
It reminds me of the mid-1800s, when having a knife on you at all times was a true necessity and having a good one increased your chances of survival from day to day, and year to year.
I took the advice posted here regarding maintaining a Damascus- bladed knife, and put several coats of Renaissance wax on the blade and it turned out excellent.
The sheath is well designed, too. Fully lined, it protects the blade but it also retains the knife without fasteners and it holds the knife in very securely.
You can turn it upside down and shake it with the knife in it and the knife will not fall out, but it still pulls out easily. Just what you want in a knife sheath.
I snagged the last one of this batch, after getting on the list to be notified when it came in stock.
This batch did not last long, less than a week. If you want one, I suggest getting on the waiting list and jumping on it when you are notified. You will not be sorry.
Best of Luck!
