The Winkler Knives II Blue Ridge Hunter is  a smaller version of the Winkler Large Belt Knife that we introduced to members of the Knife Collectors Club™ and A.G. Russell™ customers in early 2017. The difference in the overall length is 1-1⁄4". The entire knife is scaled to that difference in size – same knife just smaller. If you found the 9-1⁄4" Belt Knife a bit large, try this one on for size.

The knives that Daniel Winkler designs come from his love of life during the America Frontier. Much like a painter will paint a subject from this period of time, Daniel creates knives that would have been very much at home then. He is one of the only Master Bladesmiths creating early American style knives.

His involvement with Special Forces Teams with the U. S. Military and Allied Forces prompted him to establish the Winkler Knives II product line. The knives and axes in the WKII Collection are all custom made in the Winkler shop. Rather than being hand forged, they are created through the stock removal process to the same exacting standards that people expect from his custom pieces.

In our quest to add new product lines for our customers, we chose to offer the Large Belt Knife from the WKII line in early 2017. Because of its popularity, we have chosen the Blue Ridge Hunter, again from the WKII line, as our next offer. The  3-5⁄8" modified clip point blade is 80CrV2 at about 60 Rc., with a Caswell No-Glare finish and a tapered tang. The handles are stained Curly Maple. It ships with a brown leather sheath, which is formed to each knife, with a Kydex® insert for safety. Almost every carry option has been thought of for the sheath system. There are spacers (and various lengths of screws for attachment) that go behind the leather belt loop allowing for almost any belt thicknesses; MOLLE loops, and a spring belt (or boot) clip with a Kydex® plate for attaching the clip to the sheath. Measures 8" overall. Weighs 5.0 oz. Made in the U.S.A.
