Winkler Knives II is headed by American history enthusiast and master bladesmith Daniel Winkler. In an effort to outfit himself with the equipment that an 18th-century woodsman might carry, Winkler fashioned his first knife in 1975 and grew his skill and interest ever since. In 1988, he began working on knives full time. Winkler strives to create blades that harken to the times of hunting and scavenging on the American frontier while adding a touch of creativity to his work. The quality of his knives shows in their hardiness and utility.
The Winkler Knives II product line has been established as a result of Winkler’s work with the United States military and associated Allied Forces. Winkler makes his signature products such as the Winkler combat axe and Winkler hunting knife to his custom standards. He uses a special stock removal process to make sure each and every piece he creates reaches the same quality level as all of his unique products.
Chase Tactical carries Winkler gear as a reflection of our commitment to the American legacy. From the fine blades made by Daniel Winkler to his unparalleled axe, we stock a variety of products that will compliment your arsenal with the craftsmanship and utility that belongs in the hand of every American.
