Kressler Subhilt Fighter, Black Canvas Micarta
Dietmar Kressler, one of Germany’s most famous knifemakers, is Böker’s partner in one of the most demanding and challenging projects they have ever introduced into their Böker Plus Series. The result was worth the long period of hard work – Böker is very proud to present the Böker Plus Kressler Subhilt Integral Fighter. The hand guard, as well as the second hilt and handle butt are all an integral part of the knife, which is drop forged to the final shape. One solid piece of steel, without any separate parts like bolsters or guards. As an additional feature, we added a tapered tang. This complex and elaborate production procedure results in an extremely solid piece with a unique and noble appearance. As blade steel, they chose 440C stainless, which is well proven with its outstanding edge retention and corrosion resistance. Black canvas Micarta, fastened with stainless steel tubes, provides an excellent grip and an attractive contrast to the mirror polished surface. The second hilt provides an incomparable safe and secure handling in any situation. The Kressler Subhilt Fighter is a real “Gesamtkunstwerk,” which is absolutely unique within the world of production knives. Böker is happy to offer such a fascinating collector’s piece to the knife aficionado, displaying the high standards that they demand in all of their products, to set the bar high with such exceptional items. Comes in a collector’s case and includes a high quality leather sheath. Blade length: 7½”. Overall length: 12⅞”. Weight: 15.5 oz.
