Please excuse any Shadows or reflections in my photographs – due the Extremely High / Mirror Polished finish, this knife was difficult to capture it’s true beauty.
No detail is out of place on this knife, the *Tang is Steeply Tapered to reduce weight and the Handle Scales are Custom Contoured for a very Comfortable, Full Sized Grip. The Red Liners are a subtle touch and help to accent the Contouring of the Tang and the Handle Material.
*A Tapered Tang is a Classic Custom Option most Makers today won’t even attempt
Though this is a Bob Loveless design, the Handle has some George Herron influence that can’t be denied. The entire knife has an Extremely High Fit and Finish. This is a fitting Hand Made Tribute to one of the Great Masters of Custom Knife Making.
James Hand Stitches every Leather Sheath that he makes for his knives. I have to say that this particular Sheath is one of the best that I have seen from James.
Not many Custom Makers are offering a quality “Old School” package like this any more, this is an incredible wonderful package at a great price!
