This edition comes in two blade thicknesses. Our standard variation is 0.186” thick. The new LT variation is 0.150” thick. With the LT blade, we wanted to take advantage of the 3V steel and go as thin as possible without sacrificing strength. The resulting knife saves an ounce over the already lightweight 6.5 oz standard.
The Winkler Belt Knife TAD Edition is the result of our collaboration with Winkler Knives, developed throughout the better part of 2013. After more than a dozen prototypes and countless field tests, the Winkler Belt Knife TAD Edition finally emerged as the perfect companion to our Winkler Combat Axe HD TAD Edition. Prior to the ideology that a same caliber rifle and pistol was the ultimate field duo, earlier frontier practice paired hawks and knives. To pay homage to the skillful American men that thrived outside the borderlands, we heavily researched traditional belt knives in order to refine a version that excelled at its intrinsic purpose: versatility. We removed extraneous features to keep the size and weight down until the only thing left was necessity. Combining the attributes of a fighting knife with the strength of a field knife, we worked closely with Daniel Winkler to introduce the Winkler Belt Knife TAD Edition.
Daniel Winkler's path towards becoming a bladesmith started with a love of American history and an attempt to authentically outfit himself with the equipment of an 18th century woodsman. His inspiration comes from that period, when a single piece of equipment meant sustenance and survival. Daniel has been fine tuning his craft and art for more than 20 years.
