I’ve coveted Daniel Winkler’s handmade traditional knives for years but collectors snatch them up as soon as they are available. So when I walked up to the Winkler Knives booth and saw this, my jaw dropped.
I saw a lot of really cool stuff during my afternoon at Blade Show 2015 but for me personally, this was the best. Daniel Winkler started out making traditional Early American knife designs as a reenactor. If you’ve seen “Last of the Mohicans” you’ve seen Daniel’s craft. It’s that style which gained him his initial notoriety and eventually led to his line of tactical knives and tomahawks when a SEAL asked him to make a custom Hawk.
Daniel told me that this new Winkler Knives Traditions line would be released later this year. They are more of a production knife but will incorporate details found in his custom models. For example, the steel is the same 80CRV2 used in his production blades but the handles will incorporate more traditional materials such as antler and Maple as well as leather, which also be used for the beaded sheaths. Priced between $600 and $900 these will be blades that you can afford to own as well as use.
Coming August 2015 from Randall’s Adventure Training is the Pocket Nav / Survival Card set feature three clear map scale cards and four white information cards attached to a micro Rite In The Rain notebook. Size: 2 1/8″ x 4 1/4″ x 3/8″ thick.
