Dan Winkler made Turn of the Century style Cutting Tools for over two decades. As far as I know, Dan and Karen no longer craft any Period Pieces.
Impossible to Find on the Secondary Market
This is a very special Forged Period Style Lockback by Dan Winkler with an Incredible Period style Sheath by Karen Shook.
- Hand Forged High Carbon Damascus Blade
- High Hollow Ground Blade
- Fully Fileworked Spine and Spring
- Rich Patina on the Bolsters
- Aged Bone Handles
- Very Comfortable Full size handle
- Custom Leather, Sinew and Bone Belt Sheath
- Leather Tie Closure with Bone Button
VERY Few of Dan’s Pieces were made from Damascus!
The Spine of the Blade and the Entire Spring are Fully Fileworked – Note the small Exposed area at the Rear of the Handle, that is the Lock. The Blade Locks Open ROCK Solid, no Blade Play in any direction.
Generous sized Aged Bone handle fits with Precision against the Steel Bolster
The Leather and Suede Belt Sheath was Hand Sewn with Leather and Suede Lacing and has Bone and Antler Trade Beads on the Fringe. There is probably as much work in this Sheath alone as there is in the knife.
Stitched with a Rawhide Belt Loop on the reverse side.
Previously owned but never used carried or sharpened.
