  • Knifemaking great Bob Loveless passes away....

    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).
    "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did."

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

      Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

      It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

          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.
