Daniel Winkler has been making knives full time since 1988 and has more recently started the Winkler Knives 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 Collection are all custom made in his shop. The product line are created through the stock removal process instead of being hand forged. The Winker Knives 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.
