There is no doubt that in the world of handmade knives there was no greater influence than Robert W. Loveless. Loveless was the pioneer of handmade high-performance knives from modern materials that looked as good as they worked. His legendary designs like the drop point hunter, sub-hilt fighter, chute knife, and his embrace of high-performance steel and handle materials were the genesis of the current industry of handmade custom cutlery across the world. Loveless was an American institution that freely trained a multitude of young makers in his signature rakish styling and build techniques up until his death in 2010.
After inspecting many maker’s Loveless style knives, we selected David Sharp to make us another custom run of an exciting Loveless hybrid design-the “Super Chute” Allowed to study original Loveless patterns and techniques by Loveless’ knife making partner Jim Merritt, Sharp has emerged as one of the top Loveless design makers in the world.
The “Super Chute” is a hybrid of two legendary Loveless fighting knife designs-the “Chute Knife” and the lesser-known “Dixon Fighter”. What emerges from perfect this mashup is an exciting take on two legendary designs-the feel and look of the thicker, stouter chute profile with an elongated clip and fighter grind of the “Dixon. This hybrid is simply all business and Sharp’s grinding and hand-rubbed finish is nothing short of perfection. From the mirror-finished CPM154 powdered metal blade to the polished California Curly Claro Walnut handles-this knife is the “total package” and impossible to improve on. The sheath is made by Sharp just like Loveless did-cut out, sewn and molded by hand, and finally oiled for a lifetime of hard use
