Winkler knives have a decades-long reputation for being no-nonsense tools in the field of combat, as well as being some of the most beloved knives in a knife enthusiast's collection. Trusted by elite military operators, including the US Navy SEALs, Winkler Knives have been tested in some of the most challenging environments around the world. The WK Tactical Dagger itself was designed primarily with military application in mind by an active member of a US Tier 1 military unit. This isn't a gimmicky Rambo knife. This is something with practical application and zero frills in mind, designed to do the job daggers have done for hundreds of years--punching through armor and opponents!
The Winkler Tactical Dagger is 9 5/8" in overall length with a unique hiltless design. The 5.5" double-edged dagger style blade is made from 3/16" thick 80CrV2 steel with a black oxide Caswell finish for tactical use, as well as added corrosion resistance. As a workhorse of the tool steel world, 80CrV2 is tough and hard, with an HRC of 59-60, allowing for a razor-sharp edge that can take a lot of punishment.
The tapered tang runs the full length of the textured wasp canvas laminate (comparable to micarta) handle, giving the user a sure, yet comfortable grip. A lanyard hole at the butt of the handle allows for carrying options/applications with the use of paracord. Each Winkler Tactical Dagger comes with a black kydex sheath with a spring steel clip for a belt and Molle carry compatibility.

My first Winkler, I've been wanting one for years now. I've played with a good handful of them, and I was sure to get the operator knife. I went with the dagger because I'm sure it's the best of it's kind. It does have a different feel to it than the operator, but I don't regret my decision. I wouldn't stress about the andquot;waspandquot; color or the andquot;NSWandquot; model. Planning to keep it for the rest of my life.
