Matthias S. Recktenwald, Editor-in-Chief of VISIER

Professionally, I am working for three decades as a journalist in the special interest field and there as an editor, writer and tester (guns of all kinds, knives, accoutrements); besides that: I have written a book about Bowie Knives. Personally, I am a sport shooter since the age of 15 (air rifle, muzzleloading, Cowboy Action), I am interested in guns from the viewpoint of an historian and a collector. I am dabbling in reenactment and I am interested in knives of all kinds. And I am working with leather (making sheathes, holsters and such).
