Dietmar Kressler has been featured in the book 100 Legendary Knives, and too many other publications to count. He worked with the Legendary 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.
This Alpine series is super light, and incredibily fast with a distal taperd RWL-34 hand rubbed satin finished blade with highly polished bolster, and black canvas slabs. It includes a hand made high qualitity custom fitted sheath by the maker as well. This is a sole author piece of craftmanship.
