Welcome to 2020, everyone. I am so happy to be on the other side of 2019. Even though sales-wise, it was the biggest year for Loveless knives in decades.
However, we are here to look towards the future of collecting Loveless. The knives photographed below show you the range of the fantastic and rare use of “Camo” Micarta. They range from the ultra-rare Jr. Bear to the tiny and most rare engraved City Knife. Plus, the knife at the bottom is an odd little rascal; it is the Kitchen Knife. I have one of only three made shown here in Camo, and I have another one in Stag for sale on the website, boblovelessknives.com. If you want a rare knife, these are it. The Stag I have for sale is the only one made in Stag, and this is the single Camo Micarta Kitchen Knife. It is not for sale. I do love the Camo Micarta and hate to part with it because very little of it exists. It dated the knife to 1992 when Loveless had some green, black, and brown Camo Micarta. It was so limited that Loveless only put it on exceptional knives. He ran out in 6 months. The Camo Micarta is rarer than Ivory handled knives and much more stable. I have had Ivory open up overnight after having owned it for years. Strange stuff that Ivory. Micarta has never opened up or cracked.
The knife for sale this month is the little City Knife. What makes this so unique is that, for a fact, the smallest double nude logo blade to ever come out of the Loveless shop. Most of the City Knives are almost 2 1/4” which is short for Loveless, this one is a finger jabbing 2” blade, I mean this is small. I have owed city knives over the past 35 years, and this one takes the prize as the most miniature City Knife made. This knife is ultra-rare, and most likely a one of a kind because it has the Camo Micarta, plus you will not find another one with Camo or any other handle material that has been engraved by Dan Wilkerson. The beautiful engraving is from the Native American Kachina doll that we use to collect. You can see the dance stance, the corn, or they call it “Maze” according to the old commercials on TV.
There are seven reasons to pick up this knife; Teeny knife, Pouch sheath, Camo Micarta, engraved by Dan Wilkerson Kachina dolls, 2” blade, double nude logo, and published in my book. It is a Unicorn for at least seven purposes. All stainless hardware, and a signed sheath.
Price is $12,000
Email, call or text me and you can buy this great knife. It will be the crown of your collection for many reasons. Just look around and put this one up against all the other ones out there, which by the way, are very, very few, Loveless did not make many of these.
