As the name implies, the WK Utility Knife 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. Recently updated, the lined Boltaron® sheath with a Micarta welt is designed for optimal carry.
It 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).
