He earned accreditation as a Master Bladesmith from the American Bladesmith Society in 1993. As a historical enactor, he drew inspiration from the knives and axes of the American Frontier.
This was a time when the tools a man carried meant sustenance and survival.
That influence translated to a recognizable style that brought Winkler and his sheath-making partner Karen Shook widespread fame.
That same influence remains evident in these tools created by Winkler Knives today.
