“Zengő XL Loveless” hunter knife/bushcraft knife

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/.

My well-known and popular Zengő XL (Clang XL) model inspired by “Loveless”.

The slotted bolster ensures tighter grip and greater protection which makes this knife fit for bushcraft and hunting purposes.
