Gary Wines first started producing knives that were designed for military and Special Forces use. Through this, he became well known in the field. His knives have been used in many theaters of conflict including Iraq and Afghanistan.
Gary served as an armorer with 21 Special Air Service Regiment at Duke of York's Chelsea HQ Squadron. He is a member of both the UK SAS association and the Australian SAS association. SAS stands for Special Air Service. The British SAS has served as a model for special forces around the world. The unit has many duties including counter-terrorism, covert reconnaissance, direct action, and human intelligence gathering. The selection process for the SAS is one of the toughest in any military worldwide and the vast majority of candidates fail it. Only the best of the best are accepted.
Gary gleaned inspiration from knives used by special operations executives and British commandos in World War II. He has worked with experts in the field to develop a range of tactical and general-purpose knives specifically for military use.
Recently, he has been working on a range of knives for civilian use, specifically bushcraft, survival, and hunting knives. Gary used all of his accumulated knowledge to create knives for the outdoors. That brings us here to LTWK. Gary has designed a knife that we will make here in the shop and that will be available in the U.S. We are very excited for this opportunity to bring his designs here and make them available in the United States.
The Gary Wines Bushcrafter comes with a leather dangler belt sheath with a firesteel loop. The dangler can be removed so the sheath can be used in the "high ride" position.
