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.
The Operator is the result of a question asked of Veteran Kevin Holland who spent more than fifteen years serving as both a Navy SEAL and Army SOF Operator. Daniel Winkler asked Kevin what he would consider to be a perfect knife based on his experience. The Winkler II Operator is the result of combined knowledge of the two men -- Kevin as a skilled Operator and Daniel as a skilled Knifemaker.
The Operator features a 4 inch distal tapered blade formed from 80CRV2 carbon steel. The slender blade is designed for quick action and deep penetration. A distal tapered tang ensures optimal balance and control.
Rubber scales are set on a full tang. The handle provides a secure, comfortable grip with just the right amount of 'give'.
This WKII Operator is accompanied by a Kydex sheath wrapped with black leather. It can be worn horizontally or vertically and is fully MOLLE compatible.
