Loveless gave life to the saying "Less is more" with his elegantly simple designs.

Saw that on Knife Forums -- shame.


elegantly simple designs.

Although he specialized in the drop-point hunter, he did make some stunning presentation knives too:

He also pioneered the use of ATS-34, which was an awfully high-tech blade steel for it's time (early 70's).

Todays knive enthusiast owe him a great deal. He along with Randal were the ones who moved the craft to what it is today.

He sure got a good price for his creations - $20,000+ for a tote knife puts it out of my range. Very nice looking detail work, though.
