Here is another knife from German knife maker Dietmar Kressler that can only be described as perfection in steel. Of course Dietmar is best known to collectors as the top maker of integral knives in the world today, and this full size integral Classic Loveless style Big Bear Sub-hilt Fighter does not disappoint on that account.
Flawlessly machined from a single piece of Swedish RWL-34 steel, the frame and the blade have a gorgeous hand-rubbed satin finish. The Desert Ironwood scales are perfectly matched, and nicely contoured for comfort, so the knife sits nicely in the hand. This is an absolutely stunning piece from Dietmar, and one of the very finest Ironwood Big Bears we've ever seen!
