Continuing my thread in which I’m sharing some of the greatest Bob Loveless knife patterns/designs. I plan to do this every other day or so until I have 15 or 20.
This time: a drop-point hunter, made in 1973, when Steve Johnson worked with Bob Loveless, and it features hidden-tang construction, a single guard and a maroon-Micarta handle. How sweet it is!
From the John Denton collection, this piece was photographed by Hiro Soga and featured in the book Knifemaking With Bob Loveless by Durwood Hollis.
