The Winkler Knives II Survival Striker doesn't mince words about what it is. From first sight, you know you aren't dealing with a belt knife dressed up in tactical/survival components. This full tang fixed blade was designed to serve a combat function, lending strength to a no-frills design that gets the job done. A 5" blade provides both reach and leverage in stabbing and slashing. Ravor sharp edge means more surface area for cutting and the 5" 80CRV2 carbon steel blade means strength and lightweight design (11.5 oz). The sculpted camo G-10 handle is contoured to ensure your grip when you need it most, in all kinds of weather or conditions. The G-10 handle can be removed with the tool provided and stored on the Kydex sheath. The cut-out storage section of the handle has ferro rod for fire starting. Lanyard hole in the front and rear section of the handle. The felt-lined Kydex sheath allows for practical use, cleanup, and application in all sorts of ways favorable to the user. The overall length is 10" of no-frills tactical and survival power.
Overall, I was disappointed with this knife and returned it. I knew it was THICK, but I guess I didnít appreciate the effect that would have on the feel in the hand. It felt unbalanced with too much weight in the hand. I warmed up to it a bit over the 24 hours I had it, but the ultimate deal-breaker to me was the lack of a snug fit in the sheath. It pinched tight at the handle, so no concerns about it falling out of the sheath, but the blade within the sheath had lots of room to wobble side to side and front to back, allowing it to rattle, etc. Might not bother some people, but wasnít for me.
