The 4-1/4” blade is made from 80CrV2 steel, coated in black oxide and features a sculpted G10 curved handle, for an overall length of 8-3/8”. Additionally, the blade features thumb index file work on top of the blade. The final detail is the Kydex sheath featuring a contrasting overlay in ZEV’s iconic red and black color scheme.

First Batch of Winkler-Zev Knives Almost Sold Out

Saturday, June 9th, 2018

I saw a prototype of ZEV Technology’s knife collaboration with Winkler Knives a few months ago and was impressed with the styling. They released it last week, right on the opening of Blade Show and the knife flew off the shelves.

Last night, I spoke with Marketing VP Dave Roberts and he told me they are almost sold out of the initial batch of the knives. They are so cool, I wanted to let my readers know before these limited editions are gone.


The 4-1/4″ blade is made from 80CrV2 steel, coated in black oxide and features a sculpted G10 curved handle, for an overall length of 8-3/8″. Additionally, the blade features thumb index file work on top of the blade. The final detail is the sheath. It’s  Winkler’s new option which incorporates a contrasting Kydex overlay.


In this case, it’s classic Zev Black and Red. I thought it was pretty funny that some readers brought up Deadpool when it was first announced. Apparently, so did Zev Technologies. When I asked them for additional photos, they sent this one along.

ZEV’s influence can be seen from the red and black handle, its slashes cut in the blade, to the kydex® sheath in red and black that also feature the signature ZEV slashes.
