Ed Brown has teamed up with Winkler Knives and master bladesmith Jason Knight on its new K1 fixed blade knife.

Ed Brown K1

Fittingly for a company best known for its 1911s, the Ed Brown K1 features design cues from products like the Kobra Carry pistol. This includes the sculpted Micarta handle with “Snakeskin” scallops. It also features a guard modeled after the skeletonized hammer on the 1911.

Meanwhile, this knife also comes with a hand-ground, sharpened, durable 80CrV2 carbon steel blade that measures 4 5/8″ in overall length. In addition, the blade has a black oxide finish, giving it corrosion resistance.

Jason Knight

“Some may know Jason Knight from his time as a Judge on the History Channel’s ‘Forged In Fire,'” the press release says. “What you may not know is that he began designing knives at a young age, inspired by Edgar Rice Boroughs novels. Jason’s designs are more than just edged weapons and tools, they are functional art. His designs are inspired by curves and angles found in nature, and by years of studying blade performance and ergonomics.”

“It just doesn’t get any better than this –  having a Master Bladesmith like Jason design our first knife,” Ed Brown sales and marketing director John May added. “It has been an honor to work with him, and we look forward to teaming up with him on more projects in the future.”

Shipping out with a hand-molded Kydex sheath and touted as being ideal for the field or the range, the Ed Brown K1 is priced at $395.
