BLADE OF HONOR

THE CASE WINKLER HAMBONE IS AS TOUGH AND FORMIDABLE AS ITS NAMESAKE

Sometimes a good story begins with a great knife, but sometimes a great knife begins with a good story.

With both Winkler Knives’ and Case Knives having a devoted history of military involvement, Case having a longtime connection with the U.S. military, it only makes sense that they would collaborate on Case’s American Heroes Knife Series. The Case Winkler Hambone is the third collaboration in this series and was brought to fruition by a team of elite knifemakers to merge Case’s craftsmanship and performance standards with Winkler Knives’ wellestablished reputation.

The result is a knife that was ready for serious use.

The Nitty Gritty

The Case Winkler Hambone is the vision of what Clint Romesha – U.S. Army veteran and medal of honor recipient – wanted in a knife; a vision shared by famed Master Bladesmith Daniel Winkler. The 4.875-inch curved blade maintains excellent edge retention, while remaining easier to sharpen in the field; should the need arise.

I received the Hambone a few days before heading to Alabama to teach a Randall’s Adventure and Training Field Survival class. The first thing I noticed when I pulled it out of the box was the beautiful curly maple scales and how good it felt in the hand. I am a huge fan of traditional-style blades and this one just seemed like it would be in its element in the hands of a 19th-century frontiersman.
