... about Bob Loveless. I'm an old knife collector whose primary collection was Barry Wood knives. Because I was never infatuated with Loveless (like the hordes), I sold off the 4 Wood/Loveless knives I once owned. Well ... it turns out that that was seriously stupid. Loveless knife prices are through the roof. The book is good, but there are bits of info about Loveless that you'll only get from talking with his associates ... and those bits are not in this book. I give his kudos for his skills and contributions to custom knife making. RIP Mr. Loveless.
