Daniel Winkler MS Knives

Daniel Winkler, Master Bladesmith
Since 2006 Dan has been making knives for USA's elite Military Special Operations Teams, working closely with United States and Allied SOF Teams developing items specifically for their use, as well as adapting their input to the Winkler Knives II Collection.  Before that Dan specialized in historical reproductions and renditions of colonial America with the same solid integrity of the tools used by our forefathers. The leatherwork of Karen Shook completes the look of authenticity and integrity that Dan's work represents.  Dan produces some of the finest hand forged iron, steel, and Damascus blades.
