Beginning in 1975, Daniel Winkler began creating knives. Becoming a Master Bladesmith in 1988 and accredited as a Master from the American Blacksmith Society in 1993, Daniel created a legacy that continues in every handcrafted blade.

Winkler Knives are steeped in the historical American Frontier blades—when the quality of your knife or ax meant life or death when surviving in the wilderness.

Winkler Knives is a limited production company producing a custom made, diverse line of high-performance tools established in response to requests by Special Operations Forces. Winkler's' well-known attributes feature tapered or skeletonized tangs, no-glare finishes, and multi-option carry systems. These handmade knives and axes have had the honor of serving some of America's most elite fighting forces since 2004.

Perfectly balanced with advanced designs in shape that work well in almost all applications, Winkler Knives are the ideal tool for outdoor enthusiasts or highly trained tactical operators. From the near all-purpose WK Belt Knife, the WK Operator designed by retired US Navy Seal and US Army Special Operations in collaboration with Winkler Knives, to the WK Legacy Axe, or the WK Tactical Dagger designed by an Active Member of a US Tier 1 Military Unit, there is a handmade tool for all in this collection that will not let you down. W.K. is also a fully owned and operated American company located in Boone, North Carolina.

No frills, no extras. Each blade has been constructed with the industry's highest standard of blade steel to ensure the longevity and ruggedness of a tool that can withstand the rigors of the outdoors and operations at the same time.
