Greatest Loveless Knife Designs

2153
Here’s a fun thread I’m starting today—regularly posting pictures of the greatest Bob Loveless knife patterns/designs. I plan to do this every other day or so until I have 15 or 20.

My first one? Well, how about a New York Special as only R.W. Loveless could fashion it?!
 

This is perhaps the rarest and hardest-to-find of Loveless pieces—the original New York Special with a snap in the sheath. According to Dave Ellis of Exquisite Knives, originally told, there were seven. This is the long-lost 8th!

A big shout out to Ellis, by the way, for supplying me with an image of a New York Special when I needed one (the image, that is, not the knife). You can visit his cool website at http://www.exquisiteknives.com.

Watch for more of the Greatest Loveless designs, and let me know what you think!
