Robert Waldorf Loveless a.k.a. Bob Loveless or RW Loveless, was born on January 2, 1929 in Warren, Ohio, USA.
His works and results in knifemaking continue to inspire many bladesmiths, including myself.
He was a true pioneer, who wanted to make people understand that a knife may be beautiful and elaborate, but it is still a utility item.
He died on September 2, 2010 and “it left a vacuum in the cutlery world” /Jim Merritt/.
Here you can find those knives which carry traces of the “Loveless” inspiration (slotted bolster, handle fastening with bolts, polished blade, tapered tang construction) and spirit.
