Ed Brown Products Introduces the K1 Field Knife Designed by Jason Knight

Tuesday, June 5th, 2018

PERRY, MO – Ed Brown Products, Inc, is proud to team up with the craftsmen at Winkler Knives USA and master bladesmith Jason Knight to introduce the Ed Brown K1 fixed blade knife.

Some may know Jason Knight from his time as a Judge on the History Channel’s Forged In Fire.  What you may not know is that he began designing knives at a young age, inspired by Edgar Rice Boroughs novels.

Jason’s designs are more than just edged weapons and tools, they are functional art. His designs are inspired by curves and angles found in nature, and by years of studying blade performance and ergonomics.

His unique designs and experience made Jason the perfect choice to design the first knife for Ed Brown.  Fitting with their 50 year history of making custom 1911s, Jason took some of the design cues from standards like, the Snakeskin on the Kobra Carry and the skeletonized hammer on the 1911.  The K1 field knife is lightweight and the perfect companion in the field or on the range.

Sales and Marketing Director John May said, “It just doesn’t get any better than this –  having a Master Bladesmith like Jason design our first knife.  It has been an honor to work with him, and we look forward to teamming up with him on more projects in the future.

For more information on the K1 Knife, or any of the world’s finest custom 1911s, parts and accessories, check with your local Ed Brown Products Authorized Dealer or visit www.edbrown.com.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.  Find  informational videos on our firearms by visiting our YouTube channel.

Jason Knight to Join the Winkler Knives Team

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

Earlier Today, Winkler Knives released this statement.

Daniel Winkler’s and Karen Shook’s hope is that Winkler Knives will continue producing high performance edged tools for people who really need them for many decades, if not centuries, to come. To this end, they asked Master Bladesmith Jason Knight to join the Winkler Knives team. The three have been friends since the early 1990’s, when Jason Knight was a teenager and Karen and Daniel were not. Knight’s creative genius and knife making expertise are perfect complements to Winker Knives’ manufacturing capabilities. His (comparative) youthfulness means continuation of the standards of excellence for which Winkler Knives is known. Karen refers to the working relationship between Daniel Winkler and Jason Knight as the “Merging of Masters.” Both Master Bladesmiths have a reputation for originality and blade integrity that has brought them international acclaim. The two have the skill, expertise and vision to translate the nuances of their hand forged blades to the Winkler Knives Collection.
