The history of early America has intrigued Daniel Winkler for as long as he can remember. This fascination prompted him to make his first knife in 1975 as part of an effort to authentically outfit himself with the equipment of an 18th century woodsman. He became a full time bladesmith in 1988 and promptly became one of the only Master Bladesmiths creating early American style knives.  In the early 1990's, he created many of the Tomahawks seen in the movie "Last of the Mohicans", including the Tomahawk carried by Magua.  The Tomahawks from the movie went on to inspire the Tactical Tomahawks carried by Seal Team 6 in their hunt for Bin Laden.

In recent years, Daniel has worked with Special Forces Teams in the United States Military, as well as Allied Forces from around the world. This involvement prompted the establishment of 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 have chosen the Large Belt Knife from the WKII line.  It features a 4-7⁄8" modified clip point blade of 80CrV2 at about 60 Rc., with a Caswell No-Glare finish and a tapered tang.  The handles are 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 9-1⁄4" overall. Weighs 7.4 oz.  Made in the U.S.A.
