In my posts on the Greatest Loveless Knife Designs, I’d be remiss if I didn’t include a matching camping knife and skinner set. The Bob Loveless Lawndale-made crooked skinner at right in the Hiro Soga photo features a 4.5-inch skinner blade, a nickel-silver guard and ebony handle. The camp knife is wrought from 1/4-inch stainless steel stock with a 6.5-inch clip-point blade, full tang and ebony handle.
The knives are in the John Denton collection, and were showcased stretching from top to bottom on page 149 of the book Knifemaking With Bob Loveless.
