SLICK - We have a lot of customer interest in the Loveless style chute knife blade. This one is a more refined version that can be done with either long bolsters, a combat micarta grip, or plain slabs with no other fancy work. 3/16 inch thick steel, 4 and 1/4 inches, guard to tip, 9 and 3/4" overall. ATS 34 ADD BOLSTER HOLES

SORTA LIKE BOBS' - Bob Loveless, that is. He was kind enough to let us do several blades similar to his carefully designed styles. Ours are flat ground and not the precise masterpieces he produces, but will fit the hand and work in a manner very similar to his gentlemans' knife. Needs no guard and is ground from 5/32" thick stock, 3 inches of cutting edge and 7 and " overall. ATS-34

ANOTHER COPY - of the Loveless line. This time one of the larger working blades with style refined for the total utility. Bobs' designs have inspired the work of perhaps half the knife makers in the country. The other half didn't have the nerve to copy him. This is his straight hunter with tapered tang and ground from 3/16" thick stock, 3 and 3/4 inches of cutting edge and 8 and " overall. Needs no guard. ATS-34

DIXON FIGHTER - a mean Loveless design named after the fellow who ordered the first one. Guard goes on from the front. If you want to pin this guard on, you'll have to order the blade soft in order to be able to drill it to fit the guard. Full length double edge ground, but does not have to be sharpened on top if you want to keep it less menacing. Tapered tang and cut from 3/16" thick steel stock, 6 and 1/4, tip to guard lugs, and 10 and 7/8" overall. ATS-34, heavy duty model in 1/4" 440-C.

BIG BEAR - the ultimate fighter design from Riverside. About eight inches, doubled edged, tapered tang. From 1/4" thick steel stock, 8 and 7/8 inches, guard lugs to tip and 14 and 1/8" overall. Guard goes on from the front. Sub hilt slides on from below and should be 3/8 inch thick. Can be ordered without sub-hilt notch. To pin the front guard, order it soft. Needs a handle slab that is just slightly larger than our standard size. 440C

THE UTILITY - A Loveless 4" utility improved, tapered tang with a classic shape created by the clip at the tip of the blade. Simple but virtually perfect with the entire pattern devoted to being a utilitarian knife. Cut from 3/16" thick stock, 3 and 3/4 inches, guard notch to tip and 8 and 3/4" overall. No provision for guard, but may be ordered with a #79 type grip if you prefer it with a guard. ATS-34

5" UTILITY - the 5" version of the utility, improved. An elemental design combining the traditional, clipped tip and the Loveless touch. Cut from 3/16 inch thick steel, 4 and 8/8 inches of cutting edge and 10" inches overall. No guard. ATS-34

DROP HUNTER - Bobs' ( Loveless ) classic design, the drop hunter with front mounted guard. Possibly the most copied knife in contemporary knife making. Tapered tang and is ground from 3/16" thick stock, 4 inches, tip to guard notch and 8 and 1/4" overall. ATS-34

DROP HUNTER II - The drop hunter in a version for the guard-less fans. Tapered tang and 3/16" thick steel stock, 3 and 3/8 inches of cutting edge and 8 and 5/8" overall. ATS-34

CHUTE KNIFE - The classic Loveless. A short, tough looking knife for general use. Clip is sharpenable. Tapered tang, front mounted guard and ground from 3/16" thick stock, 5 inches from guard notches to tip and 9 and 1/4" overall. Longer versions available on special order. ATS-34

BIG APPLE - A lot like the Loveless New York Special. Has a three finger grip. Excellent hide out or concealment type with self defense in mind. This has become our best selling blade, even before it appeared in the catalog. Made from 5/32" thick steel with 3 and 5/8 from tip to lugs and 7 and 3/8" overall. Provision for bolster, but looks great with just a slab handle. ATS-34
