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. Navy SEALs and other specialized military personnel trust Winkler's American-made knives to meet their needs on dangerous missions. This belt knife is carried and used by Matt Graham, of the Discovery Channel show Dual Survival. The Winkler Belt Knife with a maple handle and a black Caswell-finished blade is an exceptional knife from Winkler's collection, and it exemplifies the authentic craftsmanship and functional design that Winkler Knives are known for.
At an impressive 9-inch total length with a 4.75-inch blade, and weighing in at 5.9 oz., the Winkler Belt Knife 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. This sturdy spring steel offers great value for its premium toughness and edge retention, while the Caswell provides a level of rust resistance on the carbon steel blade and makes the steel non-reflective to avoid unwanted glint and glare.
The handle of these fixed blade belt knives is made of premium curly maple with a full-tapered tang construction. Curly maple knives have a comfortable grip and distinct outdoor look that is easily recognizable. In fact, you may remember seeing this knife in the critically acclaimed, American action-thriller war film Zero Dark Thirty. In addition, the Winkler Maple Belt Knife includes an attractive custom-made Kydex-lined brown leather sheath that can be adjusted to wear horizontally or vertically. It also has a filed thumb rest on the blade spine for a secure grip, a lanyard hole in the handle for carrying and an integral guard. These features improve the overall safety, comfort and functionality for the user.
The Winkler Belt Knife is an essential companion for the avid outdoorsman or members of the military. Designed based on his work with Special Forces and Allied Forces teams, these high-performance Winkler custom belt knives are born of warrior's experience with an artistic touch.

The service through Knifeart was excellent. Delivery was prompt and the knife is outstanding. I own several custom knives (Randall, Spartan, Crusader Forge) and the Winkler is their equal in quality. I like that it has a carbon steel blade and I will use it for field dressing game and skinning -- it is very handy with an excellent grip. The sheath is very high quality also. Just wonder why no one has thought of how to make one of these a long time ago. The knife is very secure, safe, unobtrusive and out of the way.
Bought one of these knives with black macarta scales and black gun coat best knife I own carry s well stays sharp and chops like a much bigger knife will buy another Winkler soon
Love this knife! It's all i hoped and more. Did not se any problems with belt attachement.

Knife is excellent, sheatn is well built but the belt attachement seems poor and chep when compared with the quaity of the sheath and knife. It is thin and appesars like it will rip off.
