WK004: Blue Ridge Hunter Smooth Maple
Winkler Knives II
Winkler Knives is a limited production company that custom manufactures a diverse line of high performance edged tools. It was established in response to requests from within the Special Operations Forces community for specialized breaching tools and has become widely acclaimed for its no-frills approach to tactical and rescue operations. Their unique processes, executed by craftsmen under the direct supervision of Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler, result in handmade knives and axes without custom-made prices.
The WK Blue Ridge Hunter fixed blade knife has all the versatility of the famed Belt Knife but with a smaller profile. It is well suited to processing game and most everyday cutting chores. It measures in at 8" overall with a 4.25" Caswell no-glare black oxide drop point blade. The blade is made from 80CRV2 which is an extremely tough high carbon tool steel with excellent edge holding capabilities. The skeletonized full tang is sandwiched between two slabs of smooth maple wood with a sleek and clean look. The overall fit and finish and the attention to detail are certainly visible on this knife with Winkler Knives deciding to do intricate file work rather than standard jimping on the thumb ramp. Each Field Knife includes an ambidextrous lined Kydex leather belt sheath, malice clips, MOLLE loop attachment and hardware.
