Greatest Loveless Knife Designs

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

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