Description

Description

The WKII Rescue Axe was developed for a military rescue/extraction team to meet their need for a tool that can be used when power tools either fail or are unavailable. Its purpose is to remove survivors, casualties and sensitive equipment from crashed aircraft and ground vehicles. Designed for cutting metal, the blade will not hang in sheet metal. The tapered tang enhances power in a stroke and distributes the majority of the weight to the head making it possible to cut or break through cross beams. The axe features a point on the back of the head that serves a glass breaker, as well as a hole punch for making an entry point for the can opener on the handle. The rubber handle provides a secure grip in wet or dry conditions, as well as excellent shock-absorption. Functioning as a portable Jaws of Life this extraction tool has proven its effectiveness to law enforcement, first responders and rescue workers, as well as to the team for which it was designed. Price includes a Kydex Carrier with nylon webbing belt hanger.

Daniel Winkler has been making knives full time since 1988 and has more recently started the Winkler Knives II product line after working with the Special Forces Teams in the United States Military and Allied Forces from around the world. The knives and axes in the WKII Collection are all custom made in his shop. The WKII product line are created through the stock removal process instead of being hand forged. The Winker Knives II line utilizes the same standards of excellence in craftsmanship as his hand forged work and they are born of Warriors' experience. Information from Winkler Knives.
