The Case/Winkler collaboration started back in 2016. They have 5 pieces in the collection which includes the pack axe. The Knife I have is called the Skinner. Although it could more than cope with skinning duties being a full flat grind, it's trailing point design is actually more of a jack of all trades camp knife. The name Skinner is from the vet that designed it along with the pack axe, Kevin Holland, Skinner is his nick name lol. It really is stunning working tool. All of Winklers designs are like an extension to your hand. Speaking of Winkler, just had this turn up in the post. My new Winkler drop point spike crusher lol.
The Winkler sheaths are the best I've ever seen. It's a triple layered system of suede, kidex and the wrapped in leather. Every single component is made in the USA and the knives themselfs are made in the Appalachian mountains. But being a knife nut I bet you knew that already lol.
We've definitely got the same taste. Like yourself I've had a very keen interest in these things since I was a child, I just can't help it lol. The Tanto is one of my favourite designs. I remember when Cold Steel brought them to the market many years ago. I was amazed watching those demonstrations. Those early models are quite sought after now. You have excellent taste along with some fantastic blades.
That bow of mine is an amazing bit of kit. The poundage, cable, string etc can all be adjusted without the need for a bowpress, and breaks down into two parts for portability. I'm waiting for my thermal scope to arrive so I can start playing properly.
I'd love to be able to obtain a firearms license but in reality it's never going to happen because of the time I've spent in jail for cannabis.
Very jealous of those pistols lol. I've put an order in for a few more Winklers Knives and a new axe. I'm about to move back out into the mountains within the next couple months and need to stock up on all the kit that's gonna be needed.
Some fun times ahead lol.
Ah and before I forget the TRC. They really do make some of the best semi custom knives out there. The level of detail and finishing is superb and easily on par with the Winkler stuff.
