    Winkler Knives to Introduce Traditions Line

    Monday, June 8th, 2015

    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.

    Blade Show 2015 – RMJ Tactical

    Sunday, June 7th, 2015

    Here’s a sneak peek of a collaboration between RMP Tactical and Austrlian Peter Fegan who is known for his ergonomic designs. The curves of the handle very much remind me of an ice axe.
      

    While the production models will be crafted from 4140 chromoly steel, the Tan variant is actually a one-of-kind, Titanium model. The axes will also incorporate G10 handles. Look for a limited run this fall.
