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 Technologies Announce Collaboration with Winkler Knives

Friday, June 1st, 2018


After a chance meeting at the 2018 SHOT SHOW, ZEV teamed up with the one and only Winkler Knives to design and produce an everyday carry, personal defense knife. “Daniel Winkler and Jason Knight worked hard to bring our vision to life and we could not be happier with how this project turned out. They truly brought the ZEV philosophy of ‘Design. Feel. Performance.’ to every aspect of this knife. This is the first release of many new projects that ZEV currently has in the works.” stated Dave Roberts, VP of Marketing. The ZEV-Winkler Knife is a limited edition of 100 available for purchase exclusively on ZEV’s website. The first batch of 50 are available now, with the remaining 50 coming to market in the next 45 days.


The blade is made from 80CrV2 steel, coated in black oxide and features a sculpted G10 curved handle that indexes perfectly in the hand. Thumb index file work on top of the blade ensures a perfect grip every time.


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.


Additionally, the belt clip can be mounted vertical or horizontal for left or right-hand draw giving the end user a variety of carry options.
