Description: Mastersmith Daniel Winkler created the Winkler II line in 2010. It is an alternate approach to an established tradition. Winkler Knives II is the result of processes Daniel Winkler developed over the past few years in order to provide axes and knives to teams within United States Army Special Operations and US Naval Special Warfare. Each piece in this collection bears the Winkler Knives II touchmark. This premium special edition is exclusive to BladeGallery. Each knife is individually numbered.
This knife is very similar to the standard issue model Daniel Winkler is currently providing to active duty operators within the Naval Special Warfare Unit. The blade is formed from 3/16" CPM-3V carbon steel, providing maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistant steel. A tan Ionbond coating is added for increased corrosion resistance. This also creates a non-reflective surface.
Thick G10 scales sit on a full tang. The blade is distal tapered for great balance. The scales have been sculpted for a comfortable, secure grip. The tang extends past the scales. The spine has been stamped with the WKII touchmark, the steel used, and the individual knife number.
The versatile Kydex lined leather sheath can be worn vertically or horizontally for right- or left-hand draw with simple adjustments.
