Winkler Knives Utility Crusher w/ Lined Boltaron Sheath and A Micarta Welt
Winkler Knives is a limited production company that custom manufactures a diverse line of high performance edged tools. It was established in response to requests from within the SOF Community for specialized breaching tools and has become widely acclaimed for its no frills approach to tactical and rescue operations. Winkler Knives’ products boast attributes such as tapered or skeletonized tangs, no-glare finishes and multi-option carry systems. Each tool is made from specialty steel best suited to the intended use of the equipment. Our unique processes, executed by craftsmen under the direct supervision of Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler, result in handmade knives and axes without custom made prices.

Winkler Knives has had the honor of providing Team specific knives and axes to some of America’s most elite fighting forces since 2004. The Company’s history of producing custom-made cutlery, as well its origin in working with Special Operations, began long before that.

As the name implies, the WK Utility Knife Crusher is made for a variety of cutting chores. The wide blade is strong and the aggressive serration along the spine provides additional cutting/sawing options without sacrificing any of the cutting edge. The double “cross guard” makes heavy work safer for the user. We have added a Crusher Pommel to the back of the Knife to act as a glass breaker or pointed striker. The lined Boltaron® sheath with a 1/8” Black Laminate welt is designed for optimal carry.

The Utility Knife which is inspiration for the Utility Crusher was originally developed based on input from Naval Special Warfare, Senior Chief Petty Officer Thomas Ratzlaff, who was a great outdoorsman, a revered operator and a man who was integral in the development of several Team specific Winkler Knives designs, as well as the WK Field Knife. Many called him Rat, his license plate read “Carnivore”. R.I P. Senior Chief Petty Officer Thomas Ratzlaff November 3, 1976 - August 6, 2011 (Extortion 17).
