Dietmar Kressler has been featured in the book 100 Legendary Knives, and too many other publications to count.  He worked with Mr. Bob Loveless in his shop for sometime, and is considered today to be the modern European equivalent. He is a true Living Legend in the knife world. He builds incredibly strong, mostly full integral, masterpieces from RWL-34 which is a Swedish powder steel created to Mr Loveless's own specifications. He is a true gentleman with a personality larger than life. I have had the pleasure of dining, and drinking with Dietmar on more than one occassion.  I am proud to be an authorized dealer of his knives, but am more proud that he calls me his friend.

Dietmar sold me this knife out of his pocket first time we met at ECCKS he had made for his wife many years ago.  Its a rare piece and unlike anything else he has made with a distal taperd RWL-34 hand rubbed satin finished blade with highly polished bolster, and beautiful white bone handle. It includes a hand made high qualitity crocodile custom fitted sheath by the maker as well. This is a sole author piece of craftmanship, and a rare piece for any Kressler collector.
